The following rules are exempt from the 3-year prohibition period:
- Rules required by state statute, federal statute, or federal regulation;
- Rules that the rule-making agency determines are imperatively necessary for the preservation of public health, safety, or welfare and for which compliance with the 3-year prohibition would be contrary to the public interest;
- Rules adopted as temporary or emergency rules, which remain effective for 120 days or less; and
- Rules that a member of the regulated community petitions to be amended and for which the rule-making agency grants the petition.
