What happens after April 4, 2018?

Once the Board considers the feedback received and makes a final determination on the rules, you will receive an email notification advising whether the rules will remain unchanged or be eliminated or amended. A document called a Business Impact Analysis Form will be included with the notification to explain the impact the rules, and any proposed changes, have on business. This second notification will give you a deadline for which to comment on any of the proposed rules to the Common Sense Initiative (CSI) Office.

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.

For more detailed information on the Board’s rule making process and your opportunities to provide input, please review the Board’s Guide to Public Rulemaking.
