41-1026.01. Emergency adoption, amendment or termination of delegation agreements; definition

A. If a delegating agency makes a written finding that a delegation agreement is necessary as an emergency measure, the delegation agreement may be adopted, amended or terminated as an emergency measure, without complying with the public notice and participation provisions of this article. An agency may not adopt, amend or terminate a delegation agreement as an emergency measure if the emergency situation is created due to the agency's delay or inaction and the emergency situation could have been averted by timely compliance with the public notice and participation provisions of this article, unless the agency can present substantial evidence that failure to adopt, amend or terminate the delegation agreement as an emergency measure will result in imminent substantial peril to the public health, safety or welfare.

B. The agency shall file with the secretary of state a summary of the emergency delegation agreement. The summary shall provide the name of the person to contact in the agency with questions or comments. The secretary of state shall publish the summary in the next register.

C. The delegation agreement adopted, amended or terminated pursuant to this section is valid for one hundred eighty days after the filing of the agreement with the secretary of state and may be renewed for one or two more one hundred eighty day periods if all of the following occur:

1. The agency determines that the emergency situation still exists for each renewal.

2. The agency follows the procedures prescribed by this section for each renewal.

3. The agency has begun the public comment and participation process required by this section.

4. The agency makes a finding for an extension of time before the expiration of the preceding one hundred and eighty day period.

5. The agency files notice of the renewal with the secretary of state and notice is published in the register.

D. For purposes of this section, "emergency" means a situation which warrants the adoption of a delegation agreement without compliance with the public notice and participation provisions prescribed in this article because the adoption, amendment or termination of the delegation agreement is necessary for immediate preservation of the public health, safety or welfare, and the public notice and participation requirements of this article are impracticable.
