TO: All Concerned Persons
1. On January 26, 2018, the Department of Transportation published MAR Notice No. 18-166 pertaining to the proposed adoption and amendment of the above-stated rules at page 148 of the 2018 Montana Administrative Register, Issue Number 2.
2. The department has adopted New Rule I as proposed. New Rule I is adopted as ARM 18.15.104.
3. The department has amended ARM 18.15.101 and 18.15.603 as proposed.
4. The department received one comment. A summary of the comment received and the department's response is as follows:
COMMENT #1: One comment was received requesting a hearing on the proposed rules.
RESPONSE #1: Mont. Code Ann. § 2-4-302, and Paragraph 7 of the Notice of Proposed Adoption and Amendment state an opportunity for oral hearing must be granted if requested by either 10% or 25, whichever is less, of the persons who will be directly affected by the proposed rule. The single comment is the only hearing request received by the department, and therefore does not meet the statutory requirement for the department to schedule an oral hearing.
