"Adding legislative review to the regulation process prior to the public comment period will help eliminate conflicts, create a more stable business environment, and increase the public's trust in government."
- Rep. Holm

 

"An Act relating to review of regulations under the Administrative Procedure Act by the Legislative Affairs Agency; and providing for an effective date."

The Legislature writes laws - which are then often implemented by the Administration's regulations. Under current statute, only the Administration's Attorney General formally reviews these regulations, and this review comes late in the process when public comment has already been closed.

HB 424 establishes a formal framework for adding Legislative review to the process.

Under this bill, first the covered state agencies will e-mail their proposed regulations to the Legislative Affairs Agency, Legislative Council, the chairs of the appropriate standing committees, and the Administrative Regulation Review Committee. Then attorneys at the Legislative Affairs Agency may conduct a legal review.

If the proposed regulations fail to comply with statutory authority or legislative intent, written notice is sent to the Department of Law, the affected state agency, the Administrative Regulation Review Committee, the President of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House, where appropriate Legislative action can occur.

Adding legislative review to the regulation process will have a positive impact on the state's economy, help eliminate conflicts, create a more stable business environment, and increase the public's trust in government.
