  2.  A fiscal note for an emergency rule filed under section 536.025 shall only reflect the fiscal costs for the duration of the emergency rule.

  3.  If at the end of the first full fiscal year after the implementation of the rule, amendment, or rescission the cost to all affected entities has exceeded by ten percent or more the estimated cost in the fiscal note or has exceeded five hundred dollars if a declaration has been filed stating the proposed change will cost less than five hundred dollars, the original estimated cost together with the actual cost during the first fiscal year shall be published by the adopting agency in the Missouri Register within ninety days after the close of the fiscal year.  Such costs shall be determined by the adopting agency.  If the adopting agency fails to publish such costs as required by this section, the rule, amendment, or rescission shall be void and of no further force or effect.

  4.  The estimated cost in the aggregate shall be published in the Missouri Register contemporary with and adjacent to the notice of rulemaking, and failure to do so shall render any rule promulgated thereunder void and of no force or effect.

  5.  Any challenge to a rule based on failure to meet the requirements of this section shall be commenced within five years after the effective date of the rule.
