During the 2015 General Session, the Legislature passed one bill that affected rulemaking generally.

H.B. 37, Reauthorization of Administrative Rules (Rep. C. Oda)

H.B. 37, entitled “Reauthorization of Administrative Rules”, passed and now awaits the Governor’s action.  H.B. 37 is the legislation required annually by Subsection 63G-3-502(3).  The bill reauthorizes all administrative rules.  If signed by the Governor, under the terms of Section 3 of the bill, H.B. 37 takes effect on May 1, 2015. Additionally, H.B. 37 made technical changes to Section 63G-3-501. This is the section that creates the Legislature’s Administrative Rules Review Committee. The law governing the reauthorization of administrative rules is found at Section 63G-3-502.  Questions about the reauthorization process may be directed to Ken Hansen, 801-538-3764.  Additional information about H.B. 37 is available on the Legislature’s web site at http://le.utah.gov/~2015/bills/static/HB0037.html.
