Suspension of Rule:
Motion carried suspending all the words following “providers" in s. PSC 160.18 (10).
E m e r g e n c y R u l e s N o w I n E f f e c t
Under s. 227.24, Stats., state agencies may promulgate rules without complying with the usual rule-making procedures. Using this special procedure to issue emergency rules, an agency must find that either the preservation of the public peace, health, safety or welfare necessitates its action in bypassing normal rule-making procedures.
Emergency rules are published in the official state newspaper, which is currently the Wisconsin State Journal. Emergency rules are in effect for 150 days and can be extended up to an additional 120 days with no single extension to exceed 60 days.
Extension of the effective period of an emergency rule is granted at the discretion of the Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules under s. 227.24 (2), Stats.
Notice of all emergency rules which are in effect must be printed in the Wisconsin Administrative Register. This notice will contain a brief description of the emergency rule, the agency finding of emergency, date of publication, the effective and expiration dates, any extension of the effective period of the emergency rule and information regarding public hearings on the emergency rule.

Administration
1.   Rules adopted creating ch. Adm 43, relating to public benefits fees.
Exemption From Finding of Emergency
(See section 9101 (1zu) (a) of 1999 Wis. Act 9)
Analysis Prepared by the Department of Administration:
Statutory authority: ss. 16.004 (1), 16.957(2)(c) 4. and 5., and (4)(b), Stats.
Statute interpreted: s. 16.957(2)(c) 4. and 5., and (4), Stats.
1999 Wis. Act 9 included major provisions relating to aspects of electric utility regulation, commonly referred to as “Reliability 2000." That legislation created a new statutory framework within which public benefit programs relating to low-income energy assistance and energy conservation and renewable energy are continued and expanded. Under ss. 16.957(2)(c) and (4)(b), Stats., the Department of Administration is directed to promulgate rules setting fees to be collected by utilities from their customers, and establishing requirements and procedures related to those low-income and energy conservation programs. This rule provides mechanisms for setting, collecting, and reporting the fees, and related matters.

2.   Rule adopted creating ch. Adm 44, relating to energy conservation and efficiency and renewable resource programs.
Exemption From Finding of Emergency
(See section 9101 (1zu) (am) of 1999 Wis.
Act 9)
Analysis Prepared by the Department of Administration:
Statutory authority: ss. 16.004(1) and 16.957(2)(c), 2., 2m. and 2n., Stats.
Statute interpreted: s. 16.957(2)(b) and (3)(b), Stats.
Under s. 16.957(2)(c)2, 2m., and 2n., Stats., the Department of Administration is required to promulgate rules for energy conservation and efficiency and renewable resource public benefits programs. The rule establishes requirements, procedures and criteria to be followed by program administrators in soliciting and selecting applications for grant funding to be awarded by the Department for energy programs established under s. 16.957(2)(b), Stats.
The Department believes it is neither wise nor practical to include specific detail in this rule to cover programs that are not yet in existence. These programs will be developed over a longer period of time, with a wide range of input from the Council on Utility Public Benefits, potential program providers, and recipient citizens. They will develop as the needs of the energy efficiency and conservation market becomes clearer and our collective knowledge is increased.
Examples of the variety of programs to be created under s. 16.957 (2) (b) 1., Stats., run the gamut from a simple rebate of a few cents for the purchase of energy efficient products or services to programs requiring complete engineering audits of industrial plants, arrangement of financing, performance contracting and multi-year performance monitoring. The requirements, procedures and related selection criteria necessary to implement these varying programs cannot be specified with detail in this rule. Rather, the rule is designed to allow flexibility for development of policies and procedures through detailed policy and procedure manuals for each program, consistent with Department practice for low-income assistance programs now in effect under ss. 16.385 and 16.39, Stats.

3.   Rules adopted creating ch. Adm 45, relating to low-income assistance public benefits.
Exemption From Finding of Emergency
(See section 9101 (1zu) (am) of 1999 Wis. Act 9)
Analysis Prepared by the Department of Administration:
Statutory authority: ss. 16.004(1) and 16.957(2) (c) 2., Stats.
Statute interpreted: s. 16.957(2) (a), Stats.
Under s. 16.957(2)(c), Stats., the Department of Administration is required to promulgate rules for low-income public benefits programs. The proposed rule establishes eligibility and application requirements and procedures for assistance under a low-income public benefits program established under s. 16.957(2)(a), Stats.
It is the Department's understanding that the Legislature's intent for this rule was to build upon and transition from the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and the Low-Income Weatherization Assistance Program (LIWAP) currently administered by the Department under ss. 16.385 and 16.39, Stats., respectively. The Department presently utilizes extensive, detailed policy and procedure manuals under which those programs operate. Annual plans are also prepared for each of these programs which are submitted to the federal government as required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development after extensive opportunities for public input, including public hearings. Because these programs, and the public benefits programs yet to be developed in concert with them under s. 16.957(2)(a), Stats., must be implemented during the heating season, they must be able to react to significant fluctuations of weather, energy costs and energy shortages in a relatively short period of time. For these reasons, this proposed rule is intentionally succinct, yet flexible in order to account for the specific needs of low-income assistance programs envisioned.

EMERGENCY RULES NOW IN EFFECT (5)
Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection
1.   Rules adopted revising s. ATCP 11.20 and creating ss. ATCP 11.01 (11m) and 11.73, relating to swine import and required tests.
Finding of Emergency
The state of Wisconsin department of agriculture, trade and consumer protection (department) finds that an emergency exists and that an emergency rule is necessary to protect public health, safety and welfare. The facts constituting the emergency are as follows:
  Pseudorabies is a highly contagious disease of swine and other livestock. Wisconsin initiated its pseudorabies program in 1976. Since that time, the department has worked diligently, pork producers have sacrificed significantly and the state has paid substantial costs to eradicate the disease. In 1997, the National Pseudorabies Control Board recognized Wisconsin as a pseudorabies stage IV state. If there are no incidents of pseudorabies in the state before October, 2000, the state will be classified as a pseudorabies stage V state (free of the disease) at that time. Classification as a pseudorabies stage IV or V state creates significant benefits in the swine export market.
  There has been a significant increase in pseudorabies cases reported in several pseudorabies stage II and III states. In the past, Wisconsin pork producers have imported many swine from the pseudorabies stage II and III states which are now experiencing an increase in pseudorabies.
  If pseudorabies spreads to Wisconsin, the Wisconsin pork industry will be hampered in its ability to produce and export swine and pork products.
  The increased prevalence of pseudorabies in states from which Wisconsin import shipments originate creates a substantial threat to the pork industry in Wisconsin. The department finds that an emergency rule is needed to minimize the threat of pseudorabies.
