Rulemaking 2020

Step 1: 2020 Negotiated Rulemaking

Negotiated rulemaking is an informal part of the rulemaking process in which interested and affected persons and the agency seek to reach a consensus on the content of a rule. The PDC strongly encourages participation in the process from all stakeholders and welcomes public comment. Once negotiated rulemaking is completed or if negotiated rulemaking is not feasible, the agency will draft a proposed rule and publish it for public review and comment. For details about the rulemaking process, please see the Idaho Office of the Administrative Rules Coordinator.

PDC Negotiated Rulemaking Meeting – July 23, 2020 5:30 PM Mountain Time/4:30 PM Pacific Time to 7:30 PM Mountain Time/6:30 Pacific Time

The scope of this rulemaking is an overall rewrite of PDC rules to identify unnecessary and unclear rules, cleanup and simplify necessary rules and address the independence and equity rules proposal started last year. We welcome your review and input on the PDC rules.  Please see the attached draft Rules Outline. You may comment verbally during the meeting and/or in writing before or after the meeting prior to the comment deadline. Please also see the attached Negotiated Rulemaking Notice.
