Summary of Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
The rule may have an effect on small businesses as defined in s. 227.114 (1), Stats., in the future, but currently does not. Section 48.981(3) (cm), Stats., allows the department to contract with a licensed child welfare agency to fulfill the department’s duties on the review of an initial determination under s. 48.981 (3) (c) 5m., Stats. The Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare has been administering appeals of child abuse or neglect determinations itself and has no plans to contract with a licensed child welfare agency for duties under s. 48.981 (3) (c) 5m., Stats., upon implementation of this rule. Section 48.981 (3) (cm), Stats., does not allow counties to contract out its duties under s. 48.981 (3) (c) 5m., Stats.
