Analysis Prepared by Department of Commerce
Statutes interpreted
Statutory authority
Section 227.11 (2) (a), Stats., and SECTION 45 (1) (b) of 2009 Wisconsin Act 265.
Explanation of agency authority
SECTION 45 (1) (b) of 2009 Wisconsin Act 265 requires the Department to promulgate rules for awarding the rural outsourcing grants established in SECTION 45 (1). Section 227.11 (2) (a), Stats., authorizes the Department to promulgate rules interpreting the provisions of any Statute administered by the Department.
Related statute or rule
The Department has rules for several other programs associated with economic and business development grants, but those programs are not targeted specifically to grants to businesses for outsourcing work to rural municipalities.
Summary of rule
The rules in this order address (1) the eligibility requirements for applicants and projects; (2) the documentation that must be submitted by applicants; (3) the Department's response to the submitted documentation; and (4) the Department's use of any funds that are not applied for by the end of the 2009-11 fiscal biennium.
Comparison with federal regulations
No similar existing or proposed federal regulations or programs were found through review of the Code of Federal Regulations and pertinent federal agency Web sites — including at the US Department of Agriculture, the US Department of Commerce, the US Economic Development Administration, and the US Small Business Administration.
Comparison with rules in adjacent states
Review of existing rules and programs in adjacent States and review of proposed state legislation through the National Conference of State Legislatures did not reveal any similar rules or programs in the adjacent States.
Summary of factual data and analytical methodologies
The data and methodology for developing these rules were derived from and consisted of (1) incorporating the applicable criteria in SECTION 45 of 2009 Wisconsin Act 265; (2) incorporating applicable best practices the Department has developed in administering similar programs for economic and business development, and (3) reviewing Internet-based sources of related federal, state, and private-sector information.
Analysis and supporting documents used to determine effect on small business
The primary documentation that was used to determine the effect of the rules on small business was SECTION 45 (1) of 2009 Wisconsin Act 265. This SECTION authorizes the Department to award grants to businesses for outsourcing work to rural municipalities and requires the Department to promulgate rules for administering the program. This SECTION applies its private-sector requirements only to businesses that chose to apply for the grants.
Small Business Impact
The rules are not expected to impose significant costs or other impacts on small businesses because the rules address submittal of documentation only by applicants that choose to pursue grants for outsourcing work to rural municipalities.
Small business regulatory coordinator
Any inquiries for the small business regulatory coordinator for the Department of Commerce can be directed to Sam Rockweiler, as listed above.
Initial regulatory flexibility analysis
Types of small businesses that will be affected by the rules.
Businesses that choose to pursue grants for outsourcing work to rural municipalities, under SECTION 45 (1) (b) of 2009 Wisconsin Act 265.
Reporting, bookkeeping and other procedures required for compliance with the rules.
An application must be submitted to the Department, that includes information enabling the Department to determine the corresponding potential economic impacts of a proposed project.
Types of professional skills necessary for compliance with the rules.
No new professional skills are necessary for compliance with the rules.
Rules have a significant economic impact on small businesses.
No.
Environmental Impact
The Department has considered the environmental impact of the proposed rules. In accordance with chapter Comm 1, the proposed rules are a Type III action. A Type III action normally does not have the potential to cause significant environmental effects and normally does not involve unresolved conflicts in the use of available resources. The Department has reviewed these rules and finds no reason to believe that any unusual conditions exist. At this time, the Department has issued this notice to serve as a finding of no significant impact.
Fiscal Estimate
Although the rules will newly result in review of documentation relating to issuing grants to businesses for outsourcing work to rural municipalities, the number of these reviews and grants is expected to be too small to result in significant changes in the Department's costs for administering its business development programs. Therefore, the proposed rules are not expected to have any significant fiscal effect on the Department.
The proposed rules are not expected to impose any significant costs on the private sector, because the rules address only voluntary submittal of documentation relating to grants for outsourcing work to rural municipalities
State fiscal effect
None.
Local government fiscal effect
None.
Long-range fiscal implications
None known.

Statutory authority
Sections 961.11 (1) and 961.16, Stats.
Explanation of agency authority
The Controlled Substances Board is authorized by s. 961.11 (1), Stats., to add substances to or delete or reschedule substances listed under schedule II, in s. 961.16, Stats., pursuant to the rule-making procedures of ch. 227, Stats.

Plain language analysis
By final rule of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), adopted effective June 4, 2007, lisdexamfetamine was classified as a schedule II controlled substance under the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Lisdexamfetamine has not been so scheduled under the Wisconsin Controlled Substances Act in ch. 961, Stats. The objective of this proposed rule-making is to bring the treatment of this drug into conformity with that at the federal level.
Drugs that are classified as "controlled substances" under federal and state laws are subject to higher civil and criminal penalties for their illicit possession, distribution and use. Health care providers are also subject to greater recordkeeping requirements regarding procuring, prescribing and dispensing of such drugs. This is because certain drugs, like lisdexamfetamine, have a greater likelihood of abuse, addiction and adverse consequences to patient health if utilized inappropriately, than do other drugs.
Lisdexamfetamine is also known by the trade name Vyvanse TM and has the DEA Drug Code 1205. It will be marketed as a prescription drug product for the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
The DEA found reason to classify Lisdexamfetamine, including its salts, isomers, and salts of isomers, as a schedule II drug based on the following findings:
(1) Lisdexamfetamine has a high potential for abuse;
(2) Lisdexamfetamine has a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States; and
(3) Abuse of lisdexamfetamine may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.
Comparison with federal regulations
21 CFR Sec. 1308.12 (d) (5)
Lisdexamfetamine has been classified as a schedule II controlled substance in the federal Controlled Substances Act since June 4, 2007. This regulation change will make Wisconsin regulations consistent with the federal CSA.
Comparison with rules in adjacent states
Illinois:
Not scheduled. Provisions relating to permit authorization application requirements and renewal: Federal registration is required before activity can occur. Illinois grants an "independent activity" license that expires on December 31 of even-numbered years. A registered person who fails to renew before the expiration date of the registration must apply for a new registration. The registration expires on the date specified. Section 3100, Illinois Rules.
Iowa:
Schedule II Controlled Substance. House File 2167, Sec. 2. Provisions relating to permit authorization application requirements and renewal: Iowa's regulations identify who must register and include application requirements. A $100 late renewal fee is assessed if there is a failure to remit payment by the first day of the month following expiration. Grounds for revocation, suspension and denial are specified. Section 657, Iowa Administrative Code.
Michigan:
Not scheduled. Provisions relating to permit authorization application requirements and renewal: Michigan requires a research license. Rules deal separately with personal training for euthanasia, thefts and diversion, storage, employees and records. Chapter 338, Michigan Rules.
