HB12-1007 - Regulatory Analysis Requirement For Rules

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning The Requirement That A Regulatory Analysis Be Issued Prior To The Promulgation Of Rules By A State Administrative Agency.

Under current law, if any person so requests, a state administrative agency must issue a regulatory analysis of any proposed rule at least 15 days prior to a rule-making hearing. The bill requires agencies to conduct the analysis for every proposed rule, regardless of whether an analysis has been requested. The bill also requires each regulatory analysis to include information on the effect of the proposed rule on jobs in Colorado. If the agency specifies that the proposed rule only makes grammatical, format, or organizational changes and makes no substantive changes, an analysis is not required. The bill also states that the general assembly determines that amendments to the law made by this bill can be implemented within existing appropriations and, therefore, no separate appropriation of state moneys or allocation of full time equivalent state employees is necessary to carry out the purposes of the bill.
