Correct Statutory Citation In Rule Without Hearing

Concerning the authorization of a process to correct statutory citations contained in executive branch agency rules published in the code of Colorado regulations without the requirement to follow rule-making procedures.
2017 Regular Session
State Government
Bill Summary

Committee on Legal Services.

Under current law, if an executive branch agency rule, including a form incorporated into a rule, contains a citation to statute and the general assembly later relocates the statute in a way that renders the rule's citation to the statute inaccurate, to update the statutory citation the agency must conduct a rule-making hearing, including issuing a notice and receiving comments. The bill allows agencies to correct statutory citations in the code of Colorado regulations without notice, comment, or a hearing by submitting to the secretary of state a specific, written determination by the attorney general.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
