Economic Impact Statement
LSA Document #22-76


IC 4-22-2.1-5 Statement Concerning Rules Affecting Small Businesses
Estimated Number of Small Businesses Subject to this Rule:
The proposed rule amendments are due to recent changes in the statute and would neither increase nor decrease the number of small businesses subject to regulation. The proposed amendments to 312 IAC 3-1-7 will allow initial filings sent by electronic mail, remove deadline requirements for filings sent by electronic mail, and the proposed rule adds 312 IAC 3-1-7.5 governing a party's time to file a response or reply.

Estimated Average Annual Reporting, Record Keeping, and Other Administrative Costs Small Businesses Will Incur for Compliance:
None. There are no reporting requirements associated with this proposed rule.

Estimated Total Annual Economic Impact on Small Businesses to Comply:
None. Businesses can still file a document in the traditional manner in addition to using electronic mail.

Justification Statement of Requirement or Cost:
The proposed amendments do not mandate additional requirements on small businesses.

Regulatory Flexibility Analysis of Alternative Methods:
Because no additional requirements or costs are imposed, no flexibility analysis was performed.
