Agency Decision Summary

At its meeting on March 29, 2018, the Commission on VASAP considered Ms. Hites' proposed changes to Virginia Code §§ 18.2-270.1 and 18.2-270.2 as well as all relevant public comments.

The Commission voted unanimously to deny, in its entirety, Petition 267.  The reasons for denial are detailed below:

1.  Request to amend Virginia Code § 18.2-270.1 regarding amending each reference of "alcohol" to "ethanol:"  the Commission does not have legal authority to amend the Code of Virginia.

2.  Request to amend Virginia Code § 18.2-270.2 regarding amending each reference of "alcohol" to "ethanol:"  the Commission does not have legal authority to amend the Code of Virginia.

3.  Request to amend Virginia Administrative Code 24VAC35-60 regarding the terms of "alcohol" and "ethanol:"  the Commission denied this request as the language in the Virginia Administrative Code is currently consistent with the law as identified in Virginia Code §§ 18.2-270.1 and 18.2-270.2.  The Commission does not desire to change the language in the Virginia Administrative Code, thereby creating inconsistency.
