An explanation of the adopted permanent rules and the reason for the adopted permanent rules:

The General Assembly enacted SL 2011-397, which establishes certain statutory standards for selective vegetation removal within the rights-of-way of the highway system and standards for denial of a permit for proposed and for revocation of permits for outdoor advertising. In addition, in Section 10 of SL 2011-397, the Department of Transportation was directed to adopt temporary rules to administer the act. NCDOT adopted the proposed temporary rules to comply with the legislative change and the Rules Review Commission approved the adopted temporary rules effective March 1, 2012. The Department of Transportation is now giving notice of intent to change the permanent rules to comply with SL 2011-397 and to make requirements for a vegetation removal permit for a business facility consistent with the requirements for a vegetation removal permit for an outdoor advertising sign.
