The Codifier of Rules approved this rule as an emergency rule effective March 20, 2020 and received for publication the following notice and proposed temporary rule on March 12, 2020.

The Executive Director will receive public comment from Thursday, March 19, 2020, through Monday, April 20, 2020. Public comment may be made by the following methods:
