If the rule adopted is the same as the proposed rule, publication may be made by
publishing notice in the State Register that the rule has been adopted as proposed and by
citing the prior publication. If the rule adopted differs from the proposed rule, the portions
of the adopted rule that differ from the proposed rule must be included in the notice of
adoption together with a citation to the prior State Register publication of the remainder of
the proposed rule. The nature of the modifications must be clear to a reasonable person
when the notice of adoption is considered together with the State Register publication of
the proposed rule, except that modifications may also be made that comply with the form
requirements of section 14.07, subdivision 7.

If the agency omitted from the notice of proposed rule adoption the text of the proposed
rule, as permitted by section 14.14, subdivision 1a, paragraph (b), the chief administrative
law judge may provide that the notice of the adopted rule need not include the text of any
changes from the proposed rule. However, the notice of adoption must state in detail the
substance of the changes made from the proposed rule, and must state that a free copy of
the portion of the adopted rule that was the subject of the rulemaking proceeding, not
including any material adopted by reference as permitted by section 14.07, is available upon
request to the agency.
