BEFORE THE Department of ADMINISTRATION
OF THE STATE OF MONTANA
In the matter of the amendment of ARM
2.59.1757 pertaining to designated manager supervisory requirements
NOTICE OF AMENDMENT
TO: All Concerned Persons
1. On August 28, 2020, the Department of Administration published MAR Notice No. 2-59-604 pertaining to the proposed amendment of the above-stated rule at page 1544 of the 2020 Montana Administrative Register, Issue Number 16.
2. The department received comments in response to the proposal. A summary of each comment and the department's response is set forth below:
COMMENT #1: The department received a comment in support of the proposal stating, in part, "The department's proposal to allow license applicants to elect how to submit the information strikes a balance allowing existing licensees and new license applicants with clear policies to avoid the added maintenance of the form, and smaller organizations or those electing to emphasize the regulatory requirements with their supervisors to use the prescribed form."
RESPONSE #1: The department appreciates and agrees with the comment.
COMMENT #2: A commenter offered several suggestions for clarification regarding remote work and branch offices.
RESPONSE #2: While the department appreciates the comments, they are beyond the scope of the proposed rule amendments and cannot be included in this final notice. The department has noted the suggestions and may consider including them in a subsequent rulemaking project.
3. The department has amended ARM 2.59.1757 exactly as proposed.
