Proposed and Pending Rules

After rules have been created through the negotiated rulemaking process, but prior to legislative approval, the PDC will post rules on this page.

Proposed Rules

A Proposed Rule is a formal, written proposal by an agency to adopt a new rule in accordance with the administrative procedure act. In order for any rule to become a final (permanent) and enforceable rule, it must, at some point, but a proposed rule. A proposed rule cannot be enforced.

When a rule is proposed, the PDC will hold public hearings for comment, as well as accept comments in writing. There are currently no proposed rules. (05/01/18)

Public Hearings

Public hearings were held in each Judicial District in October. Comments from those meetings will be summarized and posted soon.

A Pending Rule is a rule that has been adopted by an agency under regular rulemaking procedures and remains subject to legislative review. This is essentially the agency’s “final rule” and the version of the rule is submitted to the legislature for approval. There are currently no pending rules. (05/01/18)
