    PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purpose and effect of this rule is to update rules to reflect the creation of Florida ABLE, Inc.

    SUMMARY: The proposed rule provides restrictions on and oversight to the resource sharing between Florida ABLE, Inc. and Florida Prepaid College Board, including requiring a written operating contract between the entities and written requests to the Executive Director of the Florida Prepaid College Board for resource requests.

A SERC has not been prepared by the Agency.

    The Agency has determined that the proposed rule is not expected to require legislative ratification based on the statement of estimated regulatory costs or if no SERC is required, the information expressly relied upon and described herein: Based on statutory and existing relationship between Florida ABLE, Inc. and the Florida Prepaid College Board, a SERC is not necessary and the rules do not require ratification by the Legislature.
