Today the NJ Department of Health is releasing the Rule Adoption notice for N.J.A.C. 8:64 that will appear in the May 20 New Jersey Register. This rule contains readoptions, amendments and repeals largely in line with what was proposed last summer. The rule adoption is attached, and please refer to the Register on May 20th for the final version.
The rule codifies the following changes that are already in effect:
That does not mean we are not allowing for satellite locations. Consistent with the EO6 Report, the Department will still consider applications for satellite locations, but they will continue to be done under the waiver authority at N.J.A.C. 8:64-7.11. Instead of adopting the language as proposed, the Department is in the process of developing additional rule-making on satellites that will present a more consistent approach and better elucidate the relationship of satellites to endorsements. We intend to circulate something in concept to you all very soon, and get your feedback in advance of the formal rulemaking process.
If you have any questions at all about the Rule Adoption, please don’t hesitate to ask.
