REGISTER INFORMATION PAGE

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痴 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痴 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痴 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 ァ 2.2-4012.1.

EMERGENCY REGULATIONS

Pursuant to ァ 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 12 months in duration; however, may be extended for six months under certain circumstances as provided for in ァ 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 (ァ 2.2-4006 et seq.) of Chapter 40 of Title 2.2 of the Code of Virginia be examined carefully.

TITLE 3. ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE CONTROL BOARD

Fast-Track Regulation

Title of Regulation: 3VAC5-70. Other Provisions(amending 3VAC5-70-90).

Statutory Authority: ァ 4.1-111 of the Code of Virginia.

Public Hearing Information: No public hearings are scheduled.

Public Comment Deadline: January 4, 2012.

Effective Date: January 19, 2012.

Agency Contact: W. Curtis Coleburn III, Chief Operating Officer, Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, 2901 Hermitage Road, Richmond, VA 23220, telephone (804) 213-4409, FAX (804) 213-4411, TTY (804) 213-4687, or email curtis.coleburn@abc.virginia.gov.

Basis: Section 4.1-111 of the Code of Virginia authorizes the board to promulgate regulations that establish requirements for the form, content, and retention of all records. The general recordkeeping requirement for various varieties of license holders and the duty to allow agents of the board to inspect such records are included in ァ 4.1-204 of the Code of Virginia.

Purpose: Chapter 513 of the 2008 Acts of Assembly added to ァ 4.1-204 of the Code of Virginia a definition of the reasonable hours within which an alcoholic beverage licensee must make its records immediately available for inspection by agents of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. The proposed amendment merely adds the statutory definition of reasonable hours to the board's recordkeeping regulation for consistency and clarity. This action protects the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the Commonwealth by facilitating the control of the distribution and sale of alcoholic beverages. It ensures that agents of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control will have access to the information necessary to enforce the laws regulating alcohol sales, while giving licensees flexibility in storage and production requirements.

Rationale for Using Fast Track: This rulemaking is expected to be noncontroversial because there are no substantive changes proposed to the regulation. The amendment is merely an attempt to clarify the current recordkeeping and inspection requirement for the guidance of the licensees and the board's special agents.

The board intends to engage representatives of the regulated community in future discussions of possible revisions of the recordkeeping requirements, but this action is only intended to more clearly state the current law.

Substance: This action amends 3VAC5-70-90 to specify that licensees must make required records available for inspection by special agents of the board between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. At any other time of day, if the licensees' records are not available, the records must be provided within 24 hours of the request.

Issues: The primary advantage associated with the proposed regulatory action, to affected businesses and the agency, is that the amendment to the regulation will give clear guidance to the licensees and the board's special agents as to when records must be made available for inspection. There are no disadvantages to the public or the Commonwealth.

Department of Planning and Budget's Economic Impact Analysis:

Summary of the Proposed Amendments to Regulation. The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board (ABC) proposes to amend its Other Provisions regulations so that the Board or its agent may ask licensees to produce records immediately only between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. During any other hours, this proposed regulatory change will allow licensees 24 hours to provide any requested records.

Result of Analysis. The benefits likely exceed the costs for this proposed change.

Estimated Economic Impact. Current regulations require licensees to keep specified records for two years and to have them readily available for inspection by ABC or its agents during reasonable hours. ABC now proposes to amend these regulations so that licensees will have 24 hours to respond to any requests for records if that request is not made between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. No licensee or other entity is likely to incur any costs on account of this regulatory change. This change will benefit licensees by allowing them time to respond to requests made when records may be locked in office space that is not staffed except during business hours.

Businesses and Entities Affected. ABC estimates that approximately 16,000 licensees are subject to the requirements of these regulations. ABC further estimates that approximately 90% of these licensees meet the legislative definition for small businesses.

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

Projected Impact on Employment. This regulatory action will likely have no impact on employment in the Commonwealth.

Effects on the Use and Value of Private Property. This regulatory action will likely have no effect on the use or value of private property in the Commonwealth.

Small Businesses: Costs and Other Effects. Small businesses in the Commonwealth are unlikely to incur any costs on account of this regulatory action.

Small Businesses: Alternative Method that Minimizes Adverse Impact. Small businesses in the Commonwealth are unlikely to incur any costs on account of this regulatory action.

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

Legal Mandate. The Department of Planning and Budget (DPB) has analyzed the economic impact of this proposed regulation in accordance with ァ 2.2-4007.04 of the Administrative Process Act and Executive Order Number 14 (10). Section 2.2-4007.04 requires that such economic impact analyses include, but need not be limited to, the projected number of businesses or other entities to whom the regulation would apply, the identity of any localities and types of businesses or other entities particularly affected, the projected number of persons and employment positions to be affected, the projected costs to affected businesses or entities to implement or comply with the regulation, and the impact on the use and value of private property. Further, if the proposed regulation has adverse effect on small businesses, ァ 2.2-4007.04 requires that such economic impact analyses include (i) an identification and estimate of the number of small businesses subject to the regulation; (ii) the projected reporting, recordkeeping, and other administrative costs required for small businesses to comply with the regulation, including the type of professional skills necessary for preparing required reports and other documents; (iii) a statement of the probable effect of the regulation on affected small businesses; and (iv) a description of any less intrusive or less costly alternative methods of achieving the purpose of the regulation. The analysis presented above represents DPB's best estimate of these economic impacts.

Agency's Response to Economic Impact Analysis: The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board concurs with the economic impact analysis of the Department of Planning and Budget.

Summary:

The proposed amendment specifies that licensees make required records available for inspection by special agents of the board between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. At any other time of day, if the records are not available, the records must be provided within 24 hours of the request.

3VAC5-70-90. Records to be kept by licensees generally; additional requirements for certain retailers; "sale" and "sell" defined; gross receipts; reports.

A. All licensees shall keep complete, accurate and separate records at the licensee's place of business for a period of two years. The records shall be available for inspection and copying by any member of the board or its special agents during reasonable hours. Licensees may use microfilm, microfiche, disks or other available technologies for the storage of their records, provided the records so stored are readily subject to retrieval and made available for viewing on a screen or in hard copy by the board or its special agents at the licensed premises between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. At any other time of day, if the licensee's records are not available for inspection, the licensee shall provide the records to a special agent of the board within 24 hours after a request is made to inspect the records.

The board and its special agents shall be allowed free access during reasonable hours to every place in the Commonwealth where alcoholic beverages are manufactured, bottled, stored, offered for sale or sold, for the purpose of examining and inspecting all records, invoices and accounts therein.

"Reasonable hours" shall be deemed to include all business hours of operation and any other time at which there exists any indication of activity upon the licensed premises.

B. All licensed manufacturers, bottlers or wholesalers of alcoholic beverages shall keep a complete, accurate and separate record of all alcoholic beverages manufactured, bottled, purchased, sold or shipped by him. Such records shall show the quantities of all such alcoholic beverages manufactured, bottled, purchased, sold or shipped by him; the dates of all sales, purchases, deliveries or shipments; the names and addresses of all persons to or from whom such sales, purchases, deliveries or shipments are made; the quantities and kinds of alcoholic beverages sold and delivered or shipped and the prices charged therefor and the taxes applicable thereto, if any. Every manufacturer and wholesaler, at the time of delivering alcoholic beverages to any person, shall also prepare a duplicate invoice showing the date of delivery, the quantity and value of each delivery and the name of the purchaser to whom the delivery is made.

C. Every retail licensee shall keep complete, accurate and separate records, including invoices, of the purchases and sales of alcoholic beverages, food and other merchandise. The records of alcoholic beverages shall be kept separate and apart from other records and shall include all purchases thereof, the dates of such purchases, the kinds and quantities of alcoholic beverages purchased, the prices charged therefor and the names and addresses of the persons from whom purchased.

Additionally, each retail licensee shall keep accurate accounts of daily sales, showing quantities of alcoholic beverages, food, and other merchandising sold and the prices charged therefor.

D. In addition to the requirements of subsections A and C of this section, mixed beverage restaurant licensees shall keep records of all alcoholic beverages purchased for sale as mixed beverages and records of all mixed beverage sales. The following actions shall also be taken:

1. On delivery of a mixed beverage restaurant license by the board, the licensee shall furnish to the board or its special agents a complete and accurate inventory of all alcoholic beverages currently held in inventory on the premises by the licensee; and

2. Once a year, each licensee shall submit on prescribed forms to the board an annual review report. The report is due within 30 days after the end of the mixed beverage license year and shall include:

a. A complete and accurate inventory of all alcoholic beverages purchased for sale as mixed beverages and held in inventory at the close of business at the end of the annual review period;

b. An accounting of the annual purchases of food, nonalcoholic beverages and alcoholic beverages, including alcoholic beverages purchased for sale as mixed beverages, and miscellaneous items; and

c. An accounting of the monthly and annual sales of all merchandise specified in subdivision 2 b of this subsection.

E. The terms "sale" and "sell" shall include exchange, barter or traffic, or delivery made otherwise than gratuitously, by any means whatsoever, of mixed beverages and other alcoholic beverages, and of meals or food.

F. In determining "gross receipts from the sale of food" for the purposes of ァ 4.1-210 of the Code of Virginia, a licensee shall not include any receipts for food for which there was no sale, as defined in this section. Food which is available at an unwritten, non-separate charge to patrons or employees during Happy Hours, private social gatherings, promotional events, or at any other time, shall not be included in the gross receipts. Food shall include hors d'oeuvres.

If in conducting its review pursuant to ァ 4.1-114 of the Code of Virginia, the board determines that the licensee has failed or refused to keep complete and accurate records of the amounts of mixed beverages or other alcoholic beverages sold at regular prices, as well as at all various reduced and increased prices offered by the licensee, the board may calculate the number of mixed drinks and other alcoholic beverage drinks sold, as determined from purchase records, and presume that such sales were made at the highest posted menu prices for such merchandise.

G. Any changes in the officers, directors or shareholders owning 10% or more of the outstanding capital stock of a corporation shall be reported to the board within 30 days; provided, however, that corporations or their wholly owned subsidiaries whose corporate common stock is publicly traded and owned shall not be required to report changes in shareholders owning 10% or more of the outstanding capital stock.

H. All banquet and special event licensees in charge of public events shall report to the board the income and expenses associated with the public event on a form prescribed by the board when the licensee engages another person to organize, conduct or operate the event on behalf of the licensee. Reports shall be made within 30 days after the date of each event. "Public events" shall be deemed to include any event at which alcoholic beverages are sold to the general public and not only to personally invited guests.

GENERAL NOTICES/ERRATA

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

Notice of Intent from Poseidon Atlantic LLC for a Small Wind Energy Project

On October 31, 2011, Poseidon Atlantic LLC (Poseidon Atlantic) submitted a notice of intent (NOI) to the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) for a small wind energy project. In accordance with 9VAC15-40-30 A 1 of the Small Renewable Energy Projects (Wind) Permit by Rule Regulations, an NOI is to be furnished, as early in the project development process as practicable, to the DEQ and is to be published in the Virginia Register as notification that Poseidon Atlantic intends to submit the necessary documentation for a permit by rule for a small renewable wind energy project in accordance with 9VAC15-40.

Proposed project: Poseidon Atlantic is proposing to develop and construct a wind turbine electric energy generation and testing facility in Northampton County, Virginia. This will be an on-land development but mainly meant for energy generation by new offshore wind turbines, including measurement and certification services for those turbines.

Proposed site location: Near Eastville, Virginia, in Northampton County. Boundary coordinates of the proposed site are:

37d 24m 50s N, 75d 53m 00s W
37d 24m 50s N, 75d 55m 50s W
37d 20m 14s N, 75d 54m 20s W
37d 20m 14s N, 75d 56m 10s W

Proposed turbine size: In detailed field studies, there are three possible turbine lines of up to 4-6 turbines per line positioned in the polygon area limited by the above coordinates. The final goal is develop up to 10 turbine positions; therefore, not all of the identified lines will be fully used. The turbines will have tip heights of up to 750 feet and range in size from 2MW to 10MW per turbine. When fully populated, the site is expected to generate up to 50MW of wind energy production power.

Current project status: Poseidon Atlantic is in the initial stage of discussions with land owners and has signed letters of intent with some owners. The letter of intent stipulates the company's intentions to negotiate a land lease agreement for the project. The Northampton County Board of Supervisors and a Special Planning Commission have prepared and adopted a Wind Ordinance. Poseidon Atlantic has worked constructively with Northampton County over the last months and expects that its plans will comply with the county ordinance. Additionally, the company has announced its plans to the Department of Defense, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Department of Energy, and the Federal Aviation Administration.

Company information: Poseidon Atlantic has strong partners with Ecofys, which owns and operates a European wind test lab, and Fugro, which is contracted on 80% of all global offshore wind projects, and is sponsored by the Virginia Economic Development Partnership and the Virginia Port Authority.
