An explanation of the proposed rules and the reason for the proposed rules:

The N.C. Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles has determined that temporary rulemaking to adopt 19A NCAC 03K .0101 and .0102 is necessary due to a change in the applicable state statutes.

On June 28, 2017, the North Carolina General Assembly approved Session Law 2017-57 "Appropriations Act of 2017" for the 2016-2017 fiscal year. In Section 34.32.(b), the agency is directed to begin collecting fees for administrative hearings beginning January 1, 2018. In Section 34.32.(c), the Division of Motor Vehicles is authorized to adopt temporary rules to implement the provisions.

In order to be able to establish the fee rates, set up the system for collecting the fees per the established rates, and notify individuals requesting administrative hearings after Jan. 1, 2018 that there will be a fee for scheduling the hearing, the agency needs to utilized the option for adopting temporary rules.
