hereby establishing, creating and adopting LAC Title 13: Part III, Chapter 19, Rules of the Entertainment Workforce Training Award Program, under the authority of LA. R.S. 36:104 ,36:108, 51:2312, and 51:2331 et seq. These Rules, being adopted in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, R.S. 49:950 et seq., shall become effective on October 20, 2008, and shall remain in effect until the expiration of the maximum period allowed under the Act, or until a final Rule is promulgated in accordance with law, whichever occurs first.

The Department of Economic Development, the Office of the Secretary, the Office of Business Development, and the Louisiana Economic Development Corporation, in cooperation with the Office of Entertainment Industry Development, have found an immediate need to establish, create and adopt rules for the regulation of an Entertainment Workforce Training Award Program in order to promote economic development and particularly entertainment industry development in this state by helping to provide funding for training for new and existing employees of the entertainment industry and thereby secure the creation and/or retention of jobs by businesses participating in the entertainment industry that are located or becoming located in this state. Without this Emergency Rule, the public welfare may be harmed as the result of the failure to enhance the growth and stability of Louisiana's entrepreneurial entertainment businesses and/or the entertainment industrial environment by making available awards under this program to businesses creating such jobs in the entertainment industry and/or training employees holding such jobs in the entertainment industry; and the state may thereby suffer the loss of entertainment business investment and economic and entertainment business development projects which would create and/or retain such jobs that would improve the standard of living and enrich the quality of life for citizens of this state.
