As used in this section, "rule" has the same meaning as in section 121.71 of the Revised Code and also includes the rescission of an existing rule.
When an agency files a rule in final form under division (B)(1) of section 111.15 , division (A)(1) of section 119.04 , division (B)(1) of section 4141.14 , or division (A) of section 5703.14 of the Revised Code that incorporates or incorporated a text or other material by reference, the agency, prior to the effective date of the rule, shall either:
(A) Deposit one complete and accurate copy of the text or other material incorporated by reference in each of the five depository libraries designated by the state library board; or
(B) Display a complete and accurate copy of the text or other material incorporated by reference on a web site maintained or made available by the agency.
An agency is not required to comply with this section if the text or other material incorporated by reference is identical to a text or other material the agency, at the time compliance with this section otherwise would be required, already is depositing or displaying under this section.
