Proposed Rules

The Board is conducting its required five year rule review of the rules listed below.  Please view the “BIA” (Business Impact Analysis) that provides an assessment of each rule, along with the proposed changes and justification for the adverse impact on business. To view each rule and the specific proposed changes, click on the links below. 

If you wish to comment on any proposed rule(s), please reply to this email AND the Common Sense Initiative Office at by July 31, 2018.

The CSI Office will review the rules and the comments received and will provide a recommendation to the Board to either proceed or make modifications to a rule(s). The Board will then proceed with formally filing the rules with the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) for adoption. A formal rules hearing will be held and you will receive an email notification advising of the date and time of the hearing at which time you may provide written or in-person testimony.
