Small Business Impact Review - Report of Findings

Pursuant to § 2.2-4007.1 of the Code of Virginia, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services conducted a small business impact review of 2VAC5-410, Rules and Regulations for the Enforcement of the Virginia Agricultural Liming Materials Law, and determined that this regulation should be retained in its current form. The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is publishing its report of findings dated May 5, 2018, to support this decision in accordance with § 2.2-4007.1 F of the Code of Virginia.

The provisions of this regulation continue to be necessary in order to assist in ensuring the proper oversight of the sale of liming materials in the Commonwealth. The agency has not received any complaints or comments from the public concerning this regulation. The agency has determined that the regulation is not unnecessarily complex and is easily understood by the regulated industry. This regulation does not overlap, duplicate, or conflict with any federal law or any other state law or regulation. Additionally, the agency has determined that there are no changes to technology, economic conditions, or other factors that have occurred that necessitate amendments to this regulation. The agency has determined that this regulation is the least burdensome alternative for effectively regulating participants in this industry, including small businesses.

Small Business Impact Review - Report of Findings

Pursuant to § 2.2-4007.1 of the Code of Virginia, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services conducted a small business impact review of 2VAC5-690, Regulations for Pesticide Containers and Containment under Authority of the Virginia Pesticide Control Act, and determined that this regulation should be retained in its current form. The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is publishing its report of findings dated May 9, 2018, to support this decision in accordance with § 2.2-4007.1 F of the Code of Virginia.

This regulation establishes (i) standards for container design and residue removal in nonrefillable pesticide containers, standards for container design in refillable pesticide containers, and standards for repackaging pesticide products into refillable containers and pesticide containment structures; and (ii) recordkeeping requirements. Individuals, businesses, or other entities affected by the proposed regulations may include pesticide registrants, retailers, distributors, commercial applicators, custom blenders, and end-users. Virginia's regulations are equivalent to the federal regulations that are currently in place and allow more flexibility and greater discretion in the enforcement of pesticide container and containment requirements based on Virginia's unique needs and conditions. No complaints or comments concerning the regulations have been received from the public. This regulation became effective in January 2014, and no conditions or factors have changed since this time that would necessitate any revisions to this regulation.

Approximately 50 facilities are required to comply with the regulations. The vast majority of these facilities are small businesses. As the regulation is equivalent to the federal regulation, this regulation does not prescribe requirements for regulants with which they would not have to comply were the regulation repealed. Amendments to the current regulation providing exemptions from its provisions or less stringent requirements for certain regulants would not provide protection for human health and the environment.

Contact Information: Liza Fleeson Trossbach, Program Manager, Office of Pesticide Services, Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, P.O. Box 1163, Richmond, VA 23218, telephone (804) 371-6559, FAX (804) 371-2283, or email liza.fleeson@vdacs.virginia.gov.

DEPARTMENT OF BEHAVIORAL HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENTAL SERVICES

Proposed Variance to Regulations to Assure the Rights of Individuals Receiving Services from Providers Licensed, Funded, or Operated by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (12VAC35-115)

The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS), in accordance with Part VI, Variances (12VAC35-115-220), of the Regulations to Assure the Rights of Individuals Receiving Services from Providers Licensed, Funded, or Operated by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (12VAC35-115), hereafter referred to as the "Human Rights Regulations," is announcing a decision by the State Human Rights Committee (SHRC) on applications for proposed variances to the Human Rights Regulations. The purpose of the regulations is to ensure and protect the legal and human rights of individuals receiving services in facilities or programs operated, licensed, or funded by DBHDS.

Each variance application must reference the specific part of these regulations to which a variance is needed, the proposed wording of the substitute rule or procedure, and the justification for a variance. Such application must also describe time limits and other conditions for duration and the circumstances that will end the applicability of the variance. All variances shall be approved for a specific time period. Variances to the Human Rights Regulations by providers are reviewed by the SHRC at least annually, with reports to the SHRC regarding the variances as requested.

After considering all available information at its meeting on April 20, 2018, the SHRC voted to approve each application for variance listed below.

Newport News Behavioral Health Center

A public comment period was held from February 19, 2018, through March 21, 2018. No comments were received. The SHRC approved the variance application. The variance was approved for a three-year period, with annual updates provided to the SHRC and quarterly review by the local human rights committee (LHRC).

Variance to procedures for restrictions on freedoms of everyday life:

12VAC35-115-100 A 1 a:

Newport News Behavioral Health Center requested a variance to this provision in order to utilize a point level system (Behavior Management Model) affecting movement of an individual within the service setting, grounds, and community. It would require an individual to earn points through a level system. The level system is to provide all residents with consistent rewards for positive and constructive behavior and provide consequences when a resident choses to ignore those rules.

DBHDS Virginia Center for Behavioral Rehabilitation (VCBR)

A public comment period was held from December 25, 2017, through January 25, 2018. No comments were received. The SHRC approved the variance applications. The variances were approved for a three-year period, with annual updates provided to the SHRC and quarterly review by the LHRC.

Variance to complaint procedure:

The Human Rights Regulations provide a comprehensive complaint resolution process that includes access to an LHRC and the SHRC, articulated in the regulation sections specified below:

12VAC35-115-150: General provisions

12VAC35-115-175: Human rights complaint process

12VAC35-115-180: Local human rights committee hearing and review procedures

12VAC35-115-190: Special procedures for emergency hearings by the LHRC

12VAC35-115-200: Special procedures for LHRC reviews involving consent and authorization

12VAC35-115-210: State Human Rights Committee appeals procedures

VCBR Facility Instruction No. 202, Resident Complaint Resolution, provides alternative procedures for addressing resident complaints to be followed in lieu of those specified in the regulatory sections listed. VCBR's variances to these regulations are reviewed by the SHRC at least annually, with VCBR providing reports to the SHRC regarding the variances as requested.

Variance for rooms within medical unit with no windows:

VCBR has four bedrooms in its medical unit that do not meet the requirement of the italicized portion of the following regulation:

12VAC35-115-50 C 3 (d): Live in a humane, safe, sanitary environment that gives each individual, at a minimum, windows or skylights in all major areas used by individuals.

VCBR requested a variance to this regulation to enable it to utilize these bedrooms if a bedroom that meets the requirement is not available on a unit that meets an individual's needs. VCBR currently provides a monthly report to the SHRC on how many times rooms with no windows within the medical unit of VCBR are used during the previous month and will continue to do so.

Variance for double-bunking:

Following the mandate by the General Assembly (Chapter 806 of the 2011 Acts of Assembly), VCBR implemented double-bunking (two individuals residing in a single room). Although VCBR has attempted to maintain residents' privacy and a physical environment free from bad odors, this is not always possible. For this reason, VCBR requested a variance to the regulations listed below:

12VAC35-115-50 C 3 (a) and (e):

a) Reasonable privacy and private storage space

e) Clean air, free of bad odors

VCBR Facility Instruction No. 124, Resident Housing Assignment, describes how residents' housing assignments are determined and shall substitute for these regulations. VCBR provides a monthly report to the SHRC on how many residents are double-bunked, complaints received by residents regarding double-bunking, and any medication sessions treatment staff hold with roommates to resolve concerns related to double-bunking.

These meetings will be open to the public and all are welcome. For more information, please contact Lucy Baker at email lucy.baker@deq.virginia.gov or telephone (540) 562-6718.

Purpose of notice: The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and its contractors, Virginia Tech Biological Systems Engineering, will discuss the results of a water quality study, known as a total maximum daily load (TMDL) for Barbours Creek, Craig Creek, Catawba Creek, Little Patterson Creek, Sinking Creek, Lapsely Run, and a section on the James River in Craig and Botetourt Counties. These streams are listed on the § 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report as impaired due to violations of Virginia's water quality standards for recreational use and general standard (benthics). Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act and § 62.1-44.19:7 C of the Code of Virginia requires DEQ to develop TMDLs for pollutants responsible for each impaired water contained in Virginia's § 303(d) TMDL Priority List and Report. This is an opportunity for local residents to learn about the condition of these streams, share information about the area, and become involved in the process of local water quality improvement. A 30-day public comment period on the draft TMDL will follow the meetings, June 21, 2018 to July 25, 2018. Access the draft TMDL document at http://bit.do/VADEQdraftTMDL.

Description of study: In Botetourt and Craig Counties, portions of the James River, Catawba Creek, Craig Creek, Barbours Creek, Sinking Creek, Lapsley Run, and Little Patterson Creek are impaired for the "recreational use" water quality standard, meaning there is too much E. Coli bacteria present in these waterbodies. A section of Catawba Creek does not have a healthy and diverse community of aquatic organisms and subsequently does not meet the "aquatic life" water quality standard. Excessive bacteria levels may pose a threat to human health; therefore, a bacteria standard was established to preserve recreational uses in Virginia's waterbodies. This water quality study will report on the sources of bacteria and recommend reductions to meet total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) for the impaired waters. A TMDL is the total amount of a pollutant a water body can contain and still meet water quality standards. To restore water quality, bacteria levels need to be reduced to the TMDL amount. A component of a TMDL is the wasteload allocation (WLA); therefore, this notice is provided pursuant to § 2.2-4006 A 14 of the Administrative Process Act for any future adoption of the TMDL WLAs.
