I go with A ..

why is the word "rules" required ... I reckon it a case of resumative modifier ..Now between A and B , it is easy to pick A ...as it is a case if subjunctive !

regard
thanx again to my friend "numasvrik" who explained the concept of resumative modifier...

why is rules intended and not rules intending?
The rules are not receiving the intention (intended), but "performing" the intention (intending).

Thanks.

Thanks.

this is a passive construction. the rules are intended to do something.
'rules intending' means that rules are intending to do something. rules don't have intentions.

that's why 'intending' is not correct

I believe the first part of the sentence The state has proposed new rules that would set minimum staffing levels for nurses is a complete sentence and further information coming after this should start with and/with not just by "," at least ";" would solve the purpose.
