STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 09374CI This legislation amends the incorporation by reference provision of the Administrative Procedure Act. The legislation was formulated by a working group created to consider concerns expressed during the 1999 Legislature about the incorporation of documents such as manuals into agency rules. The working group was comprised of Senator Shawn Keough, Representative Sher Sellman, agency representatives, members of the governor's office, the Administrative Rules Coordinator and staff, and Legislative Services staff. The bill clarifies the material which is authorized for incorporation by reference in an agency rule, provides for better public access by requiring the agency to note where copies of the incorporated material may be obtained or electronically accessed and further clarifies that incorporated material is subject to legislative review and has the same force and effect as a rule. The legislation also adds a definition of "standard" to the definitions applicable to the APA. FISCAL NOTE The legislation will have no fiscal impact.
