Licensure and Discipline of Physicians (216-RICR-40-05-1)

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 03:43:57 -0500

In accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act, Section 42-35-3 (a) (1) of the RIGL, following is a concise statement of proposed non-technical amendments to RICR-216-40-05-1 (Licensure and Discipline of Physicians). This proposed regulation would supersede ERLID 8148 (Effective November 23, 2017). The purpose of this rule filing is to create a new temporary post-graduate license category, align the rule with statutory requirements, and remove statutory duplication. The proposed temporary post-graduate license category will increase the pool of available physician in Rhode Island; an action that benefits public health. There are no substantive differences between the proposed rule filed on July 21, 2017 and this final rule. No comments were received during the public comment period and no comments were made at the public hearing. In the development of the amendments to the rule, consideration was given to: 1) alternative approaches; 2) overlap or duplication with other statutory and regulatory provisions; and 3) significant economic impact on small business. No alternative approach, duplication, or overlap was identified based on available information. In regards to the analysis of benefits/costs of the rule, new costs are not anticipated as the amendment only updates medical coding classification that hospitals and other medical institutions have already implemented in October 2015.

RI Veterans Memorial Cemetery (180-RICR-20-00-1)

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 03:43:57 -0500

This Technical Revision is being promulgated to provide information unintentionally omitted from the previous Concise Explanatory Statement. The full Concise Explanatory Statement is as follows: This rule is being adopted due to significant formatting changes (as required by RI General Laws, Section 42-35-2.11) and reorganization of the previous version of the rule, Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery Rules & Regulations, which will be repealed. Additional changes made to the rule include: -Clarifying the authority for enforcement of cemetery rules rests with the Director of Veterans Affairs, or his or her designee, and instituting discretion with the Cemetery Administrator for increased flexibility with burial scheduling; -Eligibility criteria and interment policies have been updated; -Graveside adornment rules have been consolidated and further clarified; -The general cemetery rules were revised to reflect best practices of other veterans cemeteries, with specific guidance taken from the National Cemetery Administration; -A section on the process for having monuments placed in the cemetery was added. -Certain comments and testimony received after a public hearing on May 6, 2016 were incorporated as part of the proposed revisions and additional clarification were made to the rule as a result of the public hearing held on July 7, 2017. Public comments not incorporated in the rule relate to concerns that that the provisions in § 1.6 give complete discretion to the Administrator of the Veterans Cemetery regarding what displays of placards, banners or flags will be allowed, and banning the display of “adornments” that are “offensive.” Commenter stated that based on a previous court decision, this could be considered a violation of the First Amendment. The regulation was not revised based on this comment because it is the Office of Veterans Affair’s position that the case cited involves a ban on religious expression, while the RI Veterans Memorial Cemetery (RIVMC) regulations prohibit partisan activities. Likewise, the requirement for the Administrator to approve placards, banners, and flags is also consistent with federal regulations (See 38 C.F.R. 1.218(9)). Any decisions by the Administrator may be appealed to the Director, Office of Veterans Affairs in accordance with § 1.1(F). Finally, the placement of adornments as provided in § 1.6(E) that are respectful and non-hazardous is consistent with the mission of RIVMC. Those not explicitly permitted under this section will be removed. The same appeal right is provided if a visitor feels an adornment was removed improperly.
