Laws 2012, Ch. 250, gives the Arizona Department of Health Services (Department) exempt rulemaking authority to amend the rules for abortion clinics until August 2, 2014. The Department has drafted rules that delete unnecessary and obsolete provisions, address technical changes, and comply with Laws 2012, Ch. 250.
