Sec. 3.

The revision of the Michigan administrative code shall clarify, simplify, and shorten rules while retaining their substance, sense, and meaning. The revision may include the following:

(a) Adopt a uniform system of style, printing, punctuation, capitalization, spelling, and wording; eliminate obsolete and redundant words; eliminate duplications and rules rescinded indirectly or by implication; and clarify rules.

(b) Change headings, subheadings, authority paragraphs, and catchlines, rearrange rules, change reference numbers or words to correct the references, substitute figures for written words, and correct obvious clerical, typographical, and grammatical errors, inaccuracies, inconsistencies, and omissions.

(c) Renumber rules and parts of rules, transfer rules, and divide or combine rules so as to give to distinct subject matters a separate rule number.

(d) Substitute the name of an officer, agency, or instrumentality, in which functions are currently vested, for the name of any other officer, agency, or instrumentality formerly vested with the same or similar functions.

(e) Omit temporary, emergency, and rescinding rules if a note indicates the nature and latest location in the Michigan administrative code of the omitted material.

(f) Modernize language to correspond to current drafting style for administrative rules.
