A rule authorized or provisionally adopted by the department pursuant to this subsection or Title 29-A, section 2311 after January 1, 2008 that concerns the transportation of public preschool students is a major substantive rule and subject to legislative review in accordance with Title 5, chapter 375, subchapter 2-A.
