Information About the Maryland Register and COMAR

MARYLAND REGISTER

   The Maryland Register is an official State publication published every other week throughout the year. A cumulative index is published quarterly.

   The Maryland Register is the temporary supplement to the Code of Maryland Regulations. Any change to the text of regulations published  in COMAR, whether by adoption, amendment, repeal, or emergency action, must first be published in the Register.

   The following information is also published regularly in the Register:

   • Governor’s Executive Orders

   • Attorney General’s Opinions in full text

   • Open Meetings Compliance Board Opinions in full text

   • State Ethics Commission Opinions in full text

   • Court Rules

   • District Court Administrative Memoranda

   • Courts of Appeal Hearing Calendars

   • Agency Hearing and Meeting Notices

   • Synopses of Bills Introduced and Enacted by the General Assembly

   • Other documents considered to be in the public interest

CITATION TO THE MARYLAND REGISTER

   The Maryland Register is cited by volume, issue, page number, and date. Example:

• 19:8 Md. R. 815—817 (April 17, 1992) refers to Volume 19, Issue 8, pages 815—817 of the Maryland Register issued on April 17, 1992.

CODE OF MARYLAND REGULATIONS (COMAR)

   COMAR is the official compilation of all regulations issued by agencies of the State of Maryland. The Maryland Register is COMAR’s temporary supplement, printing all changes to regulations as soon as they occur. At least once annually, the changes to regulations printed in the Maryland Register are incorporated into COMAR by means of permanent supplements.

CITATION TO COMAR REGULATIONS

   COMAR regulations are cited by title number, subtitle number, chapter number, and regulation number. Example: COMAR 10.08.01.03 refers to Title 10, Subtitle 08, Chapter 01, Regulation 03.

DOCUMENTS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE

   Incorporation by reference is a legal device by which a document is made part of COMAR simply by referring to it. While the text of an incorporated document does not appear in COMAR, the provisions of the incorporated document are as fully enforceable as any other COMAR regulation. Each regulation that proposes to incorporate a document is identified in the Maryland Register by an Editor’s Note. The Cumulative Table of COMAR Regulations Adopted, Amended or Repealed, found online, also identifies each regulation incorporating a document. Documents incorporated by reference are available for inspection in various depository libraries located throughout the State and at the Division of State Documents. These depositories are listed in the first issue of the Maryland Register published each year. For further information, call 410-974-2486.

HOW TO RESEARCH REGULATIONS

An Administrative History at the end of every COMAR chapter gives information about past changes to regulations. To determine if there have been any subsequent changes, check the ‘‘Cumulative Table of COMAR Regulations Adopted, Amended, or Repealed’’ which is found online at http://www.dsd.state.md.us/PDF/CumulativeTable.pdf. This table lists the regulations in numerical order, by their COMAR number, followed by the citation to the Maryland Register in which the change occurred. The Maryland Register serves as a temporary supplement to COMAR, and the two publications must always be used together. A Research Guide for Maryland Regulations is available. For further information, call 410-260-3876.

SUBSCRIPTION INFORMATION

   For subscription forms for the Maryland Register and COMAR, see the back pages of the Maryland Register. Single issues of the Maryland Register are $15.00 per issue.

CITIZEN PARTICIPATION IN
THE REGULATION-MAKING PROCESS

   Maryland citizens and other interested persons may participate in the process by which administrative regulations are adopted, amended, or repealed, and may also initiate the process by which the validity and applicability of regulations is determined. Listed below are some of the ways in which citizens may participate (references are to State Government Article (SG),

Annotated Code of Maryland):

   • By submitting data or views on proposed regulations either orally or in writing, to the proposing agency (see ‘‘Opportunity for Public Comment’’ at the beginning of all regulations appearing in the Proposed Action on Regulations section of the Maryland Register). (See SG, §10-112)

   • By petitioning an agency to adopt, amend, or repeal regulations. The agency must respond to the petition. (See SG §10-123)

   • By petitioning an agency to issue a declaratory ruling with respect to how any regulation, order, or statute enforced by the agency applies. (SG, Title 10, Subtitle 3)

   • By petitioning the circuit court for a declaratory judgment

on the validity of a regulation when it appears that the regulation interferes with or impairs the legal rights or privileges of the petitioner. (SG, §10-125)

   • By inspecting a certified copy of any document filed with the Division of State Documents for publication in the Maryland Register. (See SG, §7-213)

Emergency Regulations

Under State Government Article, §10-111(b), Annotated Code of Maryland, an agency may petition the Joint Committee on Administrative, Executive, and Legislative Review (AELR), asking that the usual procedures for adopting regulations be set aside because emergency conditions exist. If the Committee approves the request, the regulations are given emergency status. Emergency status means that the regulations become effective immediately, or at a later time specified by the Committee. After the Committee has granted emergency status, the regulations are published in the next available issue of the Maryland Register. The approval of emergency status may be subject to one or more conditions, including a time limit. During the time the emergency status is in effect, the agency may adopt the regulations through the usual promulgation process. If the agency chooses not to adopt the regulations, the emergency status expires when the time limit on the emergency regulations ends. When emergency status expires, the text of the regulations reverts to its original language.

Notice of Final Action

[20-159-F]

On December 22, 2020, the Maryland Department of Agriculture adopted amendments to Regulations .02—.04 under COMAR 15.01.15 Use of Antimicrobial Drugs. This action, which was proposed for adoption in 47:21 Md. R. 909—911 (October 9, 2020), has been adopted with the nonsubstantive changes shown below.

Effective Date: January 14, 2021.

Attorney General’s Certification

In accordance with State Government Article, §10-113, Annotated Code of Maryland, the Attorney General certifies that the following changes do not differ substantively from the proposed text. The nature of the changes and the basis for this conclusion are as follows:

The changes to the proposed text are limited to the text found in COMAR 15.01.15.03E(1) “General Rule Requiring Assessment”. The changes clarify the circumstances under which a cow entering a dry cycle—that is, the resting period for a dairy cow, where fresh udder tissue is formed in readiness for lactation—may be administered a medically important antimicrobial drug. Specifically, before a cow entering a dry cycle may be administered a medically important antimicrobial drug, it must be diagnosed with mastitis. The changes are nonsubstantive because: (1) the methods of assessing or diagnosing mastitis in an individual cow, as set forth in Regulation .03E(2), remain unchanged; and (2) the persons who may make this assessment or diagnosis likewise remained unchanged. For example, as provided in §E(2), a person (e.g., a dairy farmer, as explained more fully below) may assess or diagnose the presence of mastitis in a cow through certain tests and likewise, when certain signs or indicators exist; and, in addition, a veterinarian may assess or diagnose the presence of mastitis through the observation of clinical signs. The following is a closer examination of the changes to the proposed text:

(1) Deleting the word “routine” before the word “administration”: This change is intended to end any confusion of when a cow entering a dry cycle must be diagnosed with mastitis before it may be administered a medically important antimicrobial drug—that is, the cow must be diagnosed with mastitis each time.

(2) Substituting the word “cow” for “dairy cattle”: This change simply changes the plural “cattle” to the singular “cow”.

(3) Substituting the word “diagnosed” for the phrase “based on an assessment”: As noted above, given that the methods for assessing mastitis in an individual cow set forth in §E(2) have remain unchanged, the word “diagnosed” is simply interchangeable here with the phrase “based on an assessment”; and, perhaps, better reflects the Department’s interpretation that a cow must be diagnosed with mastitis before it may be administered a medically important antimicrobial drug. To this end, as noted above, §E(2) allows a person—not just a veterinarian—to assess or diagnose the presence of mastitis under certain circumstances; and also allows a veterinarian to make this assessment or diagnosis under different, more challenging circumstances. While ordinarily the diagnoses of a disease of an animal constitutes the practice of veterinary medicine in this State, this rule does not apply to a person who administers to the ills of the person’s own animals. See Agriculture Article, §2-301(g)(5), Annotated Code of Maryland (providing that the term “practice of veterinary medicine” does not include to “a person administering to the ills and injuries of his own animals”).

(4) Adding the word “bacterial” before the word “intramammary”: This change likewise is nonsubstantive because mastitis is a bacterial intramammary infection.

.03 When Permitted.

A.—D. (proposed text unchanged)

E. Dry Cow Treatment.

(1) General Rule Requiring Assessment.  The [[routine]] administration of a medically important antimicrobial drug to [[dairy cattle]] a cow entering a dry cycle is prohibited except when [[necessary based on an assessment of the presence of an]] the cow is diagnosed with a bacterial intramammary infection (mastitis).

DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES

Subtitle 18 BOATING — SPEED LIMITS AND OPERATION OF VESSELS

08.18.21 Potomac River

Authority: Natural Resources Article, §§8-703 and 8-704, Annotated Code of Maryland

Notice of Proposed Action

[21-006-P]

The Secretary of Natural Resources proposes to adopt new Regulation .07 under COMAR 08.18.21 Potomac River.

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this action is to establish a 6-knot speed limit in the Potomac River for the area surrounding the construction site of the Maryland Transportation Authority’s Harry W. Nice/Thomas “Mac” Middleton Bridge Replacement Design-Build Project. The project involves construction of a new bridge and demolition of the existing Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial/Senator Thomas “Mac” Middleton Bridge. The construction of the new bridge is scheduled to be completed by 2023 and the demolition of the old bridge is scheduled to be completed by December 31, 2024. The proposed action describes an area around the construction site and establishes a speed limit for the area. This regulation will be effective through December 31, 2024.

The proposed action is required to ensure public safety and protect human life. Without an established speed limit, the construction zone poses safety threats for all waterway users, employees, and contractors. The proposed speed limit will help protect all workers and barges from excessive wake actions. This action has been developed in cooperation with the Maryland Transportation Authority and the U.S. Coast Guard and will positively support the project and avoid delays.

Comparison to Federal Standards

There is no corresponding federal standard to this proposed action.

Estimate of Economic Impact

The proposed action has no economic impact.

Economic Impact on Small Businesses

The proposed action has minimal or no economic impact on small businesses.

Impact on Individuals with Disabilities

The proposed action has no impact on individuals with disabilities.

MARYLAND DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

Subtitle 01 OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY

15.01.05 Cost-Sharing — Water Pollution Control Program

Authority: Agriculture Article, 2-103, 8-703, 8-704, and 8-803.1, Annotated Code of Maryland[; Ch. 306, Acts of 1982 (Uncodified)]

Notice of Proposed Action

[21-005-P]

The Maryland Department of Agriculture proposes to amend Regulations .02 and .05 under COMAR 15.01.05 Cost-Sharing — Water Pollution Control Program.

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this action is to amend COMAR 15.01.05.02 and .05 so that the regulatory language is in line with recent amendments to certain statutes governing the State’s Cost-Sharing Program—specifically, Agriculture Article, §§8-701 and 8-704, Annotated Code of Maryland. The proposed action, which reflects these recent statutory amendments, defines the term “fixed natural filter practice,” expressly authorizes the use of cost-sharing funds for fixed natural filter practices, prohibits the use of such funds that do not meet certain requirements, requires that certain cost-sharing funds be based on a certain rate, requires that certain cost-sharing rates for the planting of multiple species of cover crops equal or exceed the rates paid for the planting of a single species of cover crop, and requires that certain cost-sharing funds be disbursed for a fixed natural filter practice only after the Department makes a certain determination.

Comparison to Federal Standards

There is no corresponding federal standard to this proposed action.

Estimate of Economic Impact

I. Summary of Economic Impact. The proposed action reflects recent changes to State law governing the State’s Cost-Sharing Program. See Ch. 305 (S.B. 597), Acts of 2020. These changes expressly authorize the use of cost-sharing funds not only for “best management practices” but also “fixed natural filter practices.” The term “fixed natural filter practice” is defined to mean one of the following practices: (1) The planting of riparian forest buffers; (2) The planting of riparian herbaceous cover; (3) Tree plantings that are on agricultural land and outside a riparian buffer; (4) Wetland restoration; or (5) Pasture management, including rotational grazing systems, such as livestock fencing and watering systems implemented as part of the conversion of cropland to pasture.

These changes also prohibit using State cost-sharing funds for a conservation practice that does not: (1) Address a “natural resource concern” identified by USDA Natural
Resources Conservation Service; or (2) Result in an “improved conservation benefit”. Under the proposed action, these two terms have been defined in a manner that is consistent with standards identified by USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.

The proposed action does not impact farm operations beyond that reflected in the fiscal note that accompanied S.B. 597. It is not expected to materially affect overall, ongoing spending for cost-sharing projects under the State’s Cost-Sharing Program. Revenues are not affected.
