Maine Comprehensive and Limited Environmental Laboratory Certification Rules; 10-144 CMR, Ch. 263 Proposed Maine Comprehensive and Limited Environmental Laboratory Certification Rules; 10-144 CMR, Ch. 263   Notice of Rulemaking 10-144 and 06-096 CMR, Ch.263   
Concise Summary: Maine CDC and DEP propose changes to Chapter 263, a joint rule. The proposed Maine Comprehensive and Limited Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Rule repeals and replaces Maine Comprehensive and Limited Environmental Laboratory Certification Rules. This proposed rule contains quality guidelines for laboratory data received by the DHHS and the DEP to help ensure that laboratories analyzing samples for the following regulations: Safe Drinking Water Act; Clean Water Act; Resource Conservation and Recovery Act; and Leaking Underground Storage Tanks (LUST) Program, for compliance purposes, produce legally defensible data by meeting quality control and quality assurance objectives. This rule proposes an all-encompassing quality systems section for easy reference and includes the following: 1) references to the most recently updated 40 CFR, as applicable to the methods test categories specified; 2) "provisional status" as an additional accreditation option; and 3) reporting requirements for Maine laboratories when samples are not analyzed according to accredited methods, including those for private well samples. Proposed changes amend definitions and replace the term "certification" with "accreditation" to keep consistent nomenclature with national and international standards. Additionally, the proposed rule corrects grammatical inconsistencies, formally establishes an adjusted fee structure, and presents a new construction and format for improved clarity and conformity to standard conventions. The Notice of Rulemaking provides additional details regarding this rulemaking, including public hearing information. During the comment period, comments may be submitted to the agency contact person identified in the Notice of Agency Rulemaking. Any person who requires special accommodations to participate in the public hearing is asked to notify the contact person named below at least 7 days prior to the scheduled hearing.

Concise Summary: The proposed rule is intended to comply with the Maine Background Check Center Act (“the Act”) passed in 2015.

Children’s Residential Care Facilities Licensing Rule, 10-144 CMR Chapter 36. Proposed Rule-10-144-CMR-Ch-36  Notice-of-Rulemaking-10-144-CMR-Ch-36   
Concise Summary: The Department is proposing the repeal of four existing children’s residential care licensing rules, and replacing those rules with one single rule: Children’s Residential Care Facilities Licensing Rule, to provide a comprehensive, one-stop licensing rule for all children’s residential care facilities in Maine. This proposed rule governs the licensing requirements for a children’s residential treatment facility. The rules proposed for repeal and replacement include: Rules for the Licensure of Residential Child Care Facilities at 14-118 C.M.R. Ch. 18, 14-193 C.M.R. Ch. 18, 10-148 C.M.R. Ch. 18, and Rules for the Licensure of Private-Non-Medical Institutions-Residential Child Care Facilities, 10-148 C.M.R. Ch.18-A. This proposed rule introduces a new service: a children’s residential care facility with secure capacity and psychiatric treatment (Level 2 Facility), which would allow residents to receive psychiatric and intensive mental health services in a secure facility that is not in a hospital. By expanding children’s residential facilities to this service, it would address the problem of children being treated in a facility that does not match their level of need or being sent out of Maine for treatment. This proposed rule also updates and clarifies language to reflect current practice in application and licensing requirements, since some of the proposed rules for repeal were not updated for many years. The rule is structured to more clearly explain requirements for staff training, policies, reporting, maintaining records and caring for residents.

Concise Summary: The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing to repeal Chapter 4, Public Access to Vital Records and Chapter 8, Release of Restricted Vital Statistics Data, and replace the two chapters by consolidating both into the proposed Chapter 4 entitled Disclosure of Vital Statistics Data, Reports and Vital Records.

Immunization Requirements for School Children Adopted-Rule-10-144-CMR-Ch261  Summary-of-Comments-10-144-CMR-Ch261 
Concise Summary: Pursuant to Resolves 2017, ch. 32, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Education are adopting changes to this joint major substantive rule to add quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) for all Maine students with the start of the school year 2018 to further protect Maine students from contracting meningococcal meningitis. Changes to this rule include updating the definition of “disease” to include meningococcal meningitis, updating the list of medical contraindications to MCV4 that can serve as a medical exemption and updating the vaccine dosage requirements to include one dose of quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine for entry into 7th grade and a second dose on or after the 16th birthday prior to entering 12th grade.

AIDS Case Management Program Standards; 10-148 CMR 101 Repeal AIDS-Case-Management-Program-Standards-10-148-CMR-Ch-101-Repeal  Summary-of-Comments-10-148-CMR-Ch-101 
Concise Summary: This rule is being repealed, because it is outdated, contains only the standards for the provision of services by agencies under contract, and offers no enforcement mechanisms. The rule is further unnecessary, because program requirements and deliverables are included in Rider A of provider contracts. Based on all of these reasons, the Department is adopting its repeal of this rule. Services will continue in the same manner, and program standards and requirements will continue to exist within the provider contracts.

Concise Summary: This rule is effective February 1, 2018. The adopted rule implements changes enacted by the 126th and 127th Legislature, removes language that duplicates statutes, corrects grammatical errors, outdated language and inconsistencies, and provides clarification regarding the Department’s policies and practices specific to regulating the cultivation, dispensing and possession of marijuana for medical use. Changes establish the following: new terms and definitions; a system to monitor and enforce compliance actions; and requirements for registry identification card applications, patient designations, written certifications, including medical provider-patient relationship, and reporting and record-keeping by caregivers and dispensaries. The adopted rule prohibits a visiting patient from cultivating marijuana for medical use, requires Department-approval to acquire excess marijuana, and requires medical provider endorsement to petition to add to the list of debilitating conditions. Additionally, the adopted rule removes the provision requiring the identification of an authorized person to be held by the caregiver or dispensary while the person is in the cultivation area, permits a medical provider to proceed with certifying a minor patient in the absence of a list of consulting physicians and requires nursing facilities that assist qualifying patient to have policies related to the storage, use and administration of marijuana for medical use. Changes clarify what constitutes a “collective” and update application fees to be consistent with current practice.
