|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.
