Department of Aging
Older Adult Daily Living Centers
6 Pa. Code Chapter 11
Fall 2017, as Proposed The purpose of 6 Pa. Code Chapter 11 is to protect the health, safety and well-being of persons with functional impairments for the licensure and operation of Older Adult Daily Living Centers (OADLC). These regulations—the statutory authority for which is found in Act 118 of 1990 and in 62 P.S., Chapter 2 § 1511—were adopted on July 2, 1993 and effective October 12, 1993.
The Pennsylvania Department of Aging is responsible for the enforcement of these regulations. OADLC services provide a structured program of services to clients who require the service along with valuable respite to caregivers.
The proposed rulemaking would update the existing regulatory language to address changes in other statutes, regulations, codes, ordinances, and other professional standards and practices, along with addressing the increasing frailty of clients served in OADLC.

Water Quality Standards—
Class A Stream Redesignations
25 Pa. Code Chapter 93
Quarter 3, 2017,
IRRC Consideration
The regulatory changes included in this rulemaking are the result of stream evaluations conducted by DEP in response to a submittal of data from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC). In this rulemaking, redesignations rely on § 93.4b(a)(2)(ii) to qualify streams for High Quality (HQ) designations based upon their classifications as Class A wild trout streams. DEP staff conducted an independent review of the trout biomass data in the PFBC's fisheries management reports for streams throughout the Commonwealth to ensure that the HQ criteria were met. Based on these data and appropriate regulatory criteria, DEP developed this package of stream redesignations including HQ stream redesignations in the Delaware, Susquehanna and Ohio River basins.

Water Quality Management Fee Amendments and NPDES Program Fee Amendments
25 Pa. Code Chapters 91 and 92a
Quarter 4, 2017,
EQB Consideration, as Proposed
This rulemaking proposes to amend fees related to water quality management permitting (Chapter 91) and proposes to amend the fee schedule for NPDES permit applications (Chapter 92a). Chapter 91 establishes, among other things, a water quality management (WQM) permitting program for the construction of sewage and industrial waste treatment facilities and for land application of sewage and industrial wastes. DEP began its Chapter 92a annual invoicing and fee collection program in December 2010. Sean Furjanic
(717) 787-2137
sefurjanic@pa.gov
Chapter 92a updated the fee schedule for NPDES permit applications for persons to discharge pollutants from point sources into surface waters. In addition, Chapter 92a introduced an annual fee for certain facilities authorized to discharge pollutants by individual NPDES permits. A fee analysis that DEP presented to the EQB in 2014 highlighted that, despite the fee increase in 2010, revenue continues to fall short of expenses, impeding the work of Programs to carry out necessary tasks for protecting water resources in the Commonwealth.

Administration of the Storage Tank and Spill Prevention Program
25 Pa. Code Chapter 245
Quarter 3, 2017,
EQB Consideration, as Proposed
This rulemaking proposes to amend Chapter 245 to strengthen the underground storage tank (UST) requirements by increasing the emphasis on properly operating and maintaining equipment. Currently, UST owners and operators are required to have spill prevention, overfill prevention, and release detection equipment in place, but are not required to periodically verify the functionality of some of that equipment. The proposed changes are expected to result in improvements in the routine operation, maintenance and monitoring of underground storage tanks. This will help to further reduce the number of releases from underground storage tanks and, in turn, protect public health and the environment. (Storage Tank and Spill Prevention Act) Kris Shiffer

49 Pa. Code § 43b.14a
(# 16A-4630)
Fall 2017, as Proposed The State Board of Dentistry has participated in the Act 48 citation program since 2001 and has not increased the amounts in the schedule of civil penalties for lapsed license/certificate violations since they were originally promulgated.

Renewal Fees
49 Pa. Code § 37.17
(# 16A-4713)
Fall 2017, as Final Under section 9(a) of the Professional Engineer, Land Surveyor and Geologist Registration Law (63 P.S. § 156(a)) (act), the Board is required by law to support its operations from the revenue it generates from fees, fines and civil penalties. In addition, the act provides that the Board shall increase fees if the revenue raised by fees, fines and civil penalties is not sufficient to meet expenditures over a 2-year period. The current fee structure is inadequate to support the operations of the Board. This proposed rulemaking seeks to increase the biennial renewal fee for licensees from $50 to $100 so that revenues are sufficient to cover projected expenditures as required by the act.

(# 16A-4827)
Fall 2017, as Proposed In a recent Federal lawsuit, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals held that certain provisions in the Funeral Director Law that prohibited the use of trade names are an unconstitutional violation of free commercial speech under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This rulemaking proposes to set standards for the use of names by a funeral entity and eliminate restrictions previously established under those provisions of the Funeral Director Law that have been determined to be unconstitutional.

49 Pa. Code § 20.3
(# 16A-724)
Fall 2017, as Proposed Under section 11 of the Massage Therapy Act (63 P.S. § 627.11) the State Board of Massage Therapy is required to support its operations by the revenue it generates from fees, fines and civil penalties. In addition, it provides that the Board shall increase fees if revenue is not sufficient to meet projected expenditures. Under the current fee structure, the Board cannot produce enough revenue to meet projected expenditures. This proposal would increase biennial renewal fees for massage therapists, application fees, and fees for temporary practice permits. Carol Niner

(# 16A-6710)
Fall 2017, as Final Beginning in 2011, the Board undertook a review of the language existing in § 42.24 and has compared it to various editions of the AOTA Occupational Therapy Code of Ethics. As a result of its review, the Board determined that it should update § 42.24 by adopting the 2015 AOTA Code of Ethics, which the Board finds to be the minimum standard of ethical conduct for occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants in this Commonwealth. The AOTA Code of Ethics not only reflects the Board's own view of ethical practice, but will also keep the Commonwealth's ethical standards consistent with the National standards. Carol Niner

Due to the extensive nature and breadth of these amendments, on December 22, 2012, at 42 Pa.B. 7652, the Board amended its regulations to implement Act 38. After final promulgation, the Board discovered various typographical errors to correct, necessary clarity edits and other items that were not, but could have been, addressed in the prior rulemaking. This rulemaking proposes to address those items. Michelle Roberts
(717) 783-7134
Fees
49 Pa. Code § 40.5
(# 16A-6521)
Fall 2017, as Proposed This proposed rulemaking would amend the Board's regulations so that application fees would be set to recover the cost of processing the application and biennial renewal fees would be reduced, yet would still cover the balance of the Board's cost of operations each biennium.
