§ 13.74. Effectiveness prior to publication.

 If an agency finds that the deferral of the effective date of a document until deposit of the issue of the Bulletin containing the document in the United States mail for distribution under §  5.3 (relating to effective date of documents required to be published) is impractical or contrary to the public interest, the agency may, under 45 Pa.C.S. §  903 (relating to effective date of documents), secure an immediate effective date with respect to the persons to whom the document is primarily directed by giving them actual knowledge of the document. Distribution, which may be by press or radio announcement, public advertising or in person or by mail, telephone or telegraph, or by other method selected by the agency, shall be effected by and at the cost of the agency. The actual notice will not eliminate the requirement of section 208 of the act (45 P. S. §  1208) and 45 Pa.C.S. §  722 (relating to deposit of documents required) for deposit of documents in and filing by the Bureau as a prerequisite to their validity.
