Newborn Screening Rulemaking
On May 7, 2012, Governor Brewer signed SB 1528 (Laws 2012, Ch. 299), which removes the fee cap for a second newborn screening specimen. The Department is planning to revise the rules in Arizona Administrative Code (A.A.C.) Title 9, Chapter 13, Article 2 to establish a new second fee and make other changes that would reduce the burden on stakeholders. The Department has received an exception from the Governor's rulemaking moratorium, established by Executive Order 2012-03, to conduct this rulemaking.
During the rulemaking, the Department solicited input from stakeholders, held an Oral Proceeding on February 12, 2014, and submitted a Notice of Final Rulemaking to the Governor's Regulatory Review Council (Council) on February 14, 2014. The Council approved the Notice of Final Rulemaking at the Council meeting on April 1, 2014 with an immediate effective date. The Department has filed the rulemaking with the Office of the Secretary of State. The new rules are effective April 1, 2014.
