Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis: The proposed rule is expected to have an economic impact on small businesses. This rulemaking is a revision of the existing Transportation Rule 309 and is updating the rule to be more in line with current practices in ambulance operations in the State of Wisconsin. The expense of the addition of new equipment and requirements will be largely offset by equipment that has been removed from the rule. One area where services may see an additional expense is the requirement of having an annual Department of Transportation inspection the year there is not one performed by the State Patrols Ambulance Inspector on their ambulances. Ambulance Service representatives did not indicate the rule revisions would cause financial hardships.
