Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
Clearinghouse Rule CR 14-036 - Natural Resources Board Order FR-07-12
Economic impacts of the rule are anticipated to be minimal. No comments were submitted to the department in response to the Economic Impact Analysis that was developed and posted for public input. The department solicited input from county forest administrators in the development of the draft rule language of the Economic Impact Analysis (EIA), since they are most directly impacted and likely have the best sense of how the rule could affect small businesses. Depending on the level of grant funding utilized by county forests under this grant program and whether grants funds are utilized to hire temporary employees or independent forestry contactors, there could potentially be a small positive impact on the forestry consultant business sector.
