In the DFR, the Department stated that it would withdraw the companion proposed rule and confirm the effective date of the DFR if no significant adverse comments were submitted on the DFR by September 30, 2019. The Department received no comments on the proposed rule. Accordingly, the Department is not proceeding with the proposed rule and is withdrawing it from the rulemaking process.
