    Rather than proposing a rule that concerns only the public comment portion of the variance petition process, the Department should craft a holistic rule that provides standards and procedures encompassing each interlocking component of the whole process. For example, there is presently no rule concerning the types of proofs required of the petitioner; the form of the petition; the Commissioner’s consideration of the petition; or any other aspect of the petition process. The public comment portion of the petition process should not be considered in a vacuum.
