The initial public notice hearing scheduled for December 13, 2021 has been canceled and is rescheduled by this notice to February 18, 2022.

The proposed rules will add definitions of “military service member” and “veteran” to the scrap metal administrative code, and expedite the issuance of registrations for military service members and veterans as used metal dealers, and waive registration fees for the first three years of registration-
