Items to Note:

  • After first review by the Board, the rule is filed with the Secretary of State and interested parties are notified of the proposed rulemaking.
  • Members of the public are invited to provide comment on proposed rules and administrative topics. Public comments are accepted for 21 days after the notice is published in the Secretary of State Bulletin.
  • If the Board or Committee makes significant changes to the rule at any point in the process, it will be sent back to the Committee as a first review to start the process again.
  • Temporary rules follow the same process as regular rules, but are adopted after the Board’s first review and approval of the rule.
