REGISTER INFORMATION PAGE
Vol. 32 Iss. 11 - January 25, 2016

The Virginia Register OF REGULATIONS is an official state publication issued every other week throughout the year. Indexes are published quarterly, and are cumulative for the year. The Virginia Register has several functions. The new and amended sections of regulations, both as proposed and as finally adopted, are required by law to be published in the Virginia Register. In addition, the Virginia Register is a source of other information about state government, including petitions for rulemaking, emergency regulations, executive orders issued by the Governor, and notices of public hearings on regulations.

ADOPTION, AMENDMENT, AND REPEAL OF REGULATIONS

An agency wishing to adopt, amend, or repeal regulations must first publish in the Virginia Register a notice of intended regulatory action; a basis, purpose, substance and issues statement; an economic impact analysis prepared by the Department of Planning and Budget; the agency’s response to the economic impact analysis; a summary; a notice giving the public an opportunity to comment on the proposal; and the text of the proposed regulation.

Following publication of the proposal in the Virginia Register, the promulgating agency receives public comments for a minimum of 60 days. The Governor reviews the proposed regulation to determine if it is necessary to protect the public health, safety and welfare, and if it is clearly written and easily understandable. If the Governor chooses to comment on the proposed regulation, his comments must be transmitted to the agency and the Registrar no later than 15 days following the completion of the 60-day public comment period. The Governor’s comments, if any, will be published in the Virginia Register. Not less than 15 days following the completion of the 60-day public comment period, the agency may adopt the proposed regulation.

The Joint Commission on Administrative Rules (JCAR) or the appropriate standing committee of each house of the General Assembly may meet during the promulgation or final adoption process and file an objection with the Registrar and the promulgating agency. The objection will be published in the Virginia Register. Within 21 days after receipt by the agency of a legislative objection, the agency shall file a response with the Registrar, the objecting legislative body, and the Governor.

When final action is taken, the agency again publishes the text of the regulation as adopted, highlighting all changes made to the proposed regulation and explaining any substantial changes made since publication of the proposal. A 30-day final adoption period begins upon final publication in the Virginia Register.

The Governor may review the final regulation during this time and, if he objects, forward his objection to the Registrar and the agency. In addition to or in lieu of filing a formal objection, the Governor may suspend the effective date of a portion or all of a regulation until the end of the next regular General Assembly session by issuing a directive signed by a majority of the members of the appropriate legislative body and the Governor. The Governor’s objection or suspension of the regulation, or both, will be published in the Virginia Register. If the Governor finds that changes made to the proposed regulation have substantial impact, he may require the agency to provide an additional 30-day public comment period on the changes. Notice of the additional public comment period required by the Governor will be published in the Virginia Register.

The agency shall suspend the regulatory process for 30 days when it receives requests from 25 or more individuals to solicit additional public comment, unless the agency determines that the changes have minor or inconsequential impact.

A regulation becomes effective at the conclusion of the 30-day final adoption period, or at any other later date specified by the promulgating agency, unless (i) a legislative objection has been filed, in which event the regulation, unless withdrawn, becomes effective on the date specified, which shall be after the expiration of the 21-day objection period; (ii) the Governor exercises his authority to require the agency to provide for additional public comment, in which event the regulation, unless withdrawn, becomes effective on the date specified, which shall be after the expiration of the period for which the Governor has provided for additional public comment; (iii) the Governor and the General Assembly exercise their authority to suspend the effective date of a regulation until the end of the next regular legislative session; or (iv) the agency suspends the regulatory process, in which event the regulation, unless withdrawn, becomes effective on the date specified, which shall be after the expiration of the 30-day public comment period and no earlier than 15 days from publication of the readopted action.

A regulatory action may be withdrawn by the promulgating agency at any time before the regulation becomes final.

FAST-TRACK RULEMAKING PROCESS

Section 2.2-4012.1 of the Code of Virginia provides an exemption from certain provisions of the Administrative Process Act for agency regulations deemed by the Governor to be noncontroversial.  To use this process, Governor's concurrence is required and advance notice must be provided to certain legislative committees.  Fast-track regulations will become effective on the date noted in the regulatory action if no objections to using the process are filed in accordance with § 2.2-4012.1.

EMERGENCY REGULATIONS

Pursuant to § 2.2-4011 of the Code of Virginia, an agency, upon consultation with the Attorney General, and at the discretion of the Governor, may adopt emergency regulations that are necessitated by an emergency situation. An agency may also adopt an emergency regulation when Virginia statutory law or the appropriation act or federal law or federal regulation requires that a regulation be effective in 280 days or less from its enactment. The emergency regulation becomes operative upon its adoption and filing with the Registrar of Regulations, unless a later date is specified. Emergency regulations are limited to no more than 18 months in duration; however, may be extended for six months under certain circumstances as provided for in § 2.2-4011 D. Emergency regulations are published as soon as possible in the Register.

During the time the emergency status is in effect, the agency may proceed with the adoption of permanent regulations through the usual procedures. To begin promulgating the replacement regulation, the agency must (i) file the Notice of Intended Regulatory Action with the Registrar within 60 days of the effective date of the emergency regulation and (ii) file the proposed regulation with the Registrar within 180 days of the effective date of the emergency regulation. If the agency chooses not to adopt the regulations, the emergency status ends when the prescribed time limit expires.

STATEMENT

The foregoing constitutes a generalized statement of the procedures to be followed. For specific statutory language, it is suggested that Article 2 (§ 2.2-4006 et seq.) of Chapter 40 of Title 2.2 of the Code of Virginia be examined carefully.

TITLE 22. SOCIAL SERVICES
STATE BOARD OF SOCIAL SERVICES
Proposed Regulation

Title of Regulation: 22VAC40-295. Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) (adding 22VAC40-295-145).

Statutory Authority: § 63.2-217 of the Code of Virginia.

Public Hearing Information: No public hearings are scheduled.

Public Comment Deadline: March 25, 2016.

Agency Contact: Mark Golden, Program Manager, Division of Benefit Programs, Department of Social Services, 801 East Main Street, Richmond, VA 23219, telephone (804) 726-7385, FAX (804) 726-7357, or email mark.golden@dss.virginia.gov.

Basis: Pursuant to § 63.2-217 of the Code of Virginia, the State Board of Social Services has authority to promulgate rules and regulations necessary for operation of all assistance programs.

Purpose: The purpose of the proposed action is to add penalties for persons violating spending restrictions. One of the main purposes of the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, as set forth in the authorizing federal statute, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (Public Law 104-193), is to "provide assistance to needy families so that children can be cared for in their own homes or in the homes of relatives." TANF benefits are intended to be used to ensure that the needs of children are addressed in an effort to help them become productive citizens. TANF is not intended to provide assistance to enable a child's parent to purchase alcohol, gamble, obtain tattoos or to use it for any other purpose restricted by § 63.2-621 of the Code of Virginia. The intent of the penalties in the proposed regulation is to deter parents from using TANF for inappropriate purposes, thereby ensuring the benefits are used for the subsistence needs of the child to promote the child's health, safety, and welfare.

Substance: A new section will be added to the regulation. Recipients of TANF who violate the provisions of § 63.2-621 of the Code of Virginia will be penalized with the progressive loss of benefits. The first offense will result in the loss of TANF financial assistance for one month. The second offense will result in the loss of TANF financial assistance for three months. Subsequent offenses will result in the loss of TANF financial assistance for six months.

Issues: The primary advantage to the general public and the Commonwealth is that the proposed regulation will provide a deterrent to misusing taxpayer funded public benefits. The proper use of assistance will result in more efficient use of funds and will ensure that funds are used as intended for providing necessities to poor families with children. There are no known disadvantages to the regulation.

Department of Planning and Budget's Economic Impact Analysis:

Summary of the Proposed Amendments to Regulation. To enact new legislative restrictions on temporary assistance to needy families (TANF) expenditures contained in § 63.2-621, the State Board of Social Services (Board) proposes to amend its TANF regulation to include sanctions for violating § 63.2-621.

Result of Analysis. There is insufficient information available to ascertain whether the benefits of this proposed regulatory change will outweigh its costs.

Estimated Economic Impact. To comply with federal restrictions placed on TANF funds, the General Assembly passed a law (§ 63.2-621) that prohibits electronic benefits transfers (EBT) used to purchase alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, lottery tickets or sexually explicit visual materials.

The law also prohibits any transaction, including ATM transactions, at government stores established for the sale of alcoholic beverages (ABC stores) and establishments in which pari-mutuel betting or charitable gaming is conducted, tattooing or body piercing is performed for hire or consideration and there is adult oriented entertainment provided by semi-nude or nude performers.

The Board now proposes to amend TANF regulations to set forth penalties for TANF recipients who use their EBT cards in prohibited establishments or to purchase prohibited items. The Board proposes to suspend benefits for one month for a first offense, three months for a second offense and six months for third and subsequent offenses.

Board staff report that they will investigate reports of prohibited use of TANF benefits and apply sanctions when the reports are accurate. Board staff also report that the average TANF benefit per family is $258 per month and that the Board expects there will be very low numbers of incidences where TANF benefits are suspended under these new provisions (approximately five suspensions per month for first time offenses). If benefit suspensions follow the pattern expected by the Board, approximately 60 families a year (out of the 30,000 that receive TANF) will lose one month of benefits. These families in total will lose $15,480 per year and the state will see an average savings of $15,480 per year that will not be paid out in TANF benefits.

While it is fairly easy to estimate the number of families that might be affected by these regulatory changes, estimating the number of businesses that might be affected is more complicated. There are thousands of grocery and drug stores across the Commonwealth that sell both wine and beer and tobacco products. The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) reports that there are 350 ABC stores around the state. Depending on how broadly sexually explicit visual material is defined, all bookstores in Virginia may be on the list of affected businesses. Nude and semi-nude bars and gentlemen's clubs will be affected although the Department of Planning and Budget (DPB) does not have access to the resources needed to estimate the number of these establishments in Virginia. The Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR) reports that, as of April 1, 2014, there are 248 tattoo parlors and 196 body piercing establishments which may be affected. The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) does not have any estimates of how many groups or establishments conduct charitable gaming but does report that such groups include churches, athletic associations and school clubs such as band boosters. All of these entities may lose revenues on account of § 63.2-621 and this proposed regulation. If the Board's estimates of sanction incidences and scope are correct, the total revenue lost to all businesses, clubs and organizations will be $15,480 per year. If the Board's estimates are not correct, total revenues lost will be equal to total sanctions imposed.

Businesses and Entities Affected. Board staff reports that approximately 30,000 families in the Commonwealth receive TANF benefits. All of these families, as well as many businesses, groups and establishments have the potential to be affected by these proposed regulatory changes. Please see the paragraph above this section for estimates of businesses, groups and establishments that may be affected.

Localities Particularly Affected. No locality will be particularly affected by this proposed regulatory action.

Projected Impact on Employment. Given the likely scope of potential revenue lost, this regulatory action is unlikely to have an effect on employment in the Commonwealth.

Effects on the Use and Value of Private Property. To the extent that monies received through TANF benefits can be considered the recipients' private property, this proposed regulation, and the law that necessitates it, restrict the use of that private property.

Small Businesses: Costs and Other Effects. No small businesses will incur costs on account of this regulatory action, but some small businesses may lose some revenue.

Small Businesses: Alternative Method that Minimizes Adverse Impact. There is likely no alternative method of regulation that would both meet the General Assembly's and the Board's goals and be less costly for affected businesses.

Real Estate Development Costs. This regulatory action will likely have no effect on real estate development costs in the Commonwealth.

Agency's Response to Economic Impact Analysis: The Department of Social Services reviewed the economic impact analysis prepared by the department of Planning and Budget and has no comment.

Summary:

The proposed amendment establishes penalties for recipients of benefits from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program who violate § 63.2-621 of the Code of Virginia, which restricts how TANF program benefits may be used. The first offense will result in the loss of TANF financial assistance for one month; the second offense will result in the loss of TANF financial assistance for three months; and subsequent offenses will result in the loss of TANF financial assistance for six months.

22VAC40-295-145. Sanctions for violating spending restrictions.

Local departments of social services shall be authorized to sanction recipients of TANF by the full amount of the TANF grant for violating the TANF spending restrictions in § 63.2-621 of the Code of Virginia, as follows:

1. For the first offense, the full amount of TANF benefits for the family shall be suspended for one calendar month.

2. For the second offense, the full amount of TANF benefits for the family shall be suspended for three calendar months.

3. For the third offense, or subsequent offenses, the full amount of TANF benefits for the family shall be suspended for six calendar months.

Small Business Impact Review - Report of Findings

Pursuant to § 2.2-4007.1 of the Code of Virginia, the Board for Professional Soil Scientists, Wetland Professionals, and Geologists conducted a small business impact review of 18VAC145-30, Regulations Governing Certified Professional Wetland Delineators, and determined that this regulation should be retained in its current form. The Board for Professional Soil Scientists, Wetland Professionals, and Geologists is publishing its report of findings dated December 23, 2015, to support this decision in accordance with § 2.2-4007.1 F of the Code of Virginia.

1. The current regulations establish minimum requirements for the certification of wetland delineators; however, because the regulations establish requirements for a certificate program (not a licensure program), the regulations do not affect the practice of wetland delineation by noncertified individuals.

2. Although no comments were received online; three comments were sent to the board. The first comment is a statutory requirement. The second comment is already prohibited by statute. The last comment is in support of retaining the regulations in their current form.

3. The regulations are not complex in nature.

4. The regulations do not overlap, duplicate, or conflict with federal or state laws or regulations but instead work in concert with them.

5. The last periodic review concluded January 2012. There were further changes to the regulations that became effective March 1, 2015.

6. No small business impact has been identified.
