La. R.S. 13:4202(B)(2) provides that the publication of the commissioner's determination in the Louisiana Register "shall not be considered rulemaking within the intendment of the Administrative Procedure Act, R.S. 49:950 et seq., and particularly R.S. 49:953." Therefore, (1) a fiscal impact statement, (2) a family impact statement, and (3) a notice of intent are not required to be filed with the Louisiana Register.
