Purpose

The purpose of this rulemaking is to propose changes to the Factory Assembled Structures (FAS) rules to increase fees by 5.86% and housekeeping changes to the rules listed on the rulemaking card. The fee increase is the maximum allowed by the state Office of Financial Management for fiscal year 2023. A fee increase is needed to cover the operating expenses of the FAS Program. The current fee levels are insufficient to cover current Program expenses. The increase will ensure that revenues match expenditures, otherwise service levels may need to be reduced. Additionally, a housekeeping change is needed to correct a typo for rule clarity.
