The bill adds the following definition to the act: " Acceptable data . " Empirical, replicable and testable data as evidenced in supporting documentation, statistics, reports, studies or research.
It then requires that the regulatory analysis form submitted with the regulation include "(14) A description of any data upon which a regulation is based with a detailed explanation of how the data was obtained and why the data is acceptable data.
