This Week at Rules – February 17, 2021

Brody Mangum This Week at Rules

Hello rule readers!

This week at rules we’re exploring how to find and access historical documents.

Front Page Focus

If you’ve looked outside in much of the state recently, it may not be a surprise that our Front Page Focus for the week is R920-6, Traction Device/Tire Chain Requirements. R920-6 covers the conditions that require traction devices during winter weather and provides definitions for related terms.

Joining R920-6 is the recently revised Codification Segue as well as the still frequently visited R162-2f. Real Estate Licensing Practices and Rules.
