STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 17056 Temporary rules adopted by state agencies under the Administrative Procedure Act, by statute expire at the end of the current legislative session. This concurrent resolution would approve and extend agency temporary rules beyond the current session, with exceptions. FISCAL NOTE Adoption of this concurrent resolution, in and of itself, could have no fiscal impact upon any state or local government funds or accounts, beyond the scope or impact of the individual rules themselves. By adopting this concurrent resolution, the legislature avoids having necessary agency rules expire, which would occasion additional expense to state agencies for readopting and republishing temporary rules needed to conduct state business.
