(1) The accompanying citation is not such as reasonably would enable a reasonable person to whom the proposed rule or revised proposed rule applies readily and without charge to find and inspect the incorporated text or other material;

(2) The accompanying citation is not such as reasonably would enable the joint committee readily and without charge to find and inspect the incorporated text or other material, and the agency did not file or otherwise make the incorporated text or other material available without charge to the joint committee; or

(3) The agency has treated the proposed rule or revised proposed rule in whole or in part as exempt from sections 121.71 to 121.74 of the Revised Code on grounds the incorporated text or other material has one or more of the characteristics described in division (B) of section 121.75 of the Revised Code, but the incorporated text or other material actually does not have any of those characteristics.
