(a) (1) Every rule and regulation proposed to be adopted by any state agency, before being submitted to the secretary of administration and the attorney general as required by this section, shall be submitted with the economic impact statement for the rule and regulation required by K.S.A. 77-416, and amendments thereto, to the director of the budget for review of the accuracy and completeness of the agency's economic impact statement. The director of the budget shall make an independent determination of the amount of implementation and compliance costs reasonably expected to be incurred by or passed along to businesses, local government and individuals over any two-year period as a result of the proposed rule and regulation and shall conduct an independent analysis of the factors set forth in K.S.A. 77-416(b)(1)(A) and (C) and (e), and amendments thereto. Every rule and regulation approved by the director of the budget shall be stamped as approved, and the date of approval shall be indicated.

(2) If the director independently determines that a proposed rule and regulation submitted or resubmitted by the agency will not result in implementation or compliance costs of more than $3,000,000 for businesses, local government or individuals in any two-year period, the director shall:

(A) Approve the rule and regulation if the director independently determines that the economic impact statement is accurate, demonstrates a complete analysis as required by K.S.A. 77-416(b)(1)(A) and (C) and (e), and amendments thereto, and the director concurs with the economic impact statement; or

(B) disapprove the rule and regulation.

The report shall include an analysis of the agency's and the director's decisions with respect to the necessity of the cost of the rule and regulation to achieve legislative intent.
