   13  and exclusive purpose of satisfying any condition on
   14  effectiveness imposed under s. 120.541(3), Florida Statutes:
   15  Rule 5F-11.002, Florida Administrative Code, entitled “Standards
   16  of National Fire Protection Association Adopted,” relating to
   17  adopting the standards of the National Fire Protection
   18  Association for the storage and handling of liquefied petroleum
   19  gas and standards for gas appliances and gas piping.
   20         (2) This act serves no other purpose and shall not be

   24  both, as appropriate. This act does not alter rulemaking
   25  authority delegated by prior law, does not constitute

   28  intended to preserve the status of any cited rule as a rule
   29  under chapter 120, Florida Statutes. This act does not cure any
   30  rulemaking defect or preempt any challenge based on a lack of
   31  authority or a violation of the legal requirements governing the
   32  adoption of any rule cited.
   33         Section 2. This act shall take effect upon becoming a law.
