Text of Proposed Changes to the Board's Administrative Rules
Business Impact Analyses
SB 2 of the 129th General Assembly requires all state agencies to draft rules in collaboration with stakeholders and to assess and justify any adverse impact on the business community (as defined in section 107.52 of the Ohio Revised Code). As part of the process, each agency must complete a Business Impact Analysis (BIA), which demonstrates the regulatory intent of the rule(s), the development of the regulation(s), any potential adverse impact to business, and any regulatory flexibility associated with the rule(s). Ohio Revised Code sections 107.51 to 107.62 authorize the Common Sense Initiative Office (CSIO) to review agency BIAs and any stakeholder comments. To submit comments on rules submitted to the CSIO, please send an email to both firstname.lastname@example.org and CSIPublicComments@governor.ohio.gov. Please note that comments on draft rules are public records.
Standard Rule Review Timeline
The Board's goal is to have all rules changes go into effect on May 1. To achieve this goal, the Board starts the rule review process during the late summer and develops an initial draft of proposed changes. Those changes are posted to the website and emailed to the listserv for public comment. The comments are reviewed at the Sections' November meetings and changes, if needed, are made based on the comments. The changes are formally filed in December and a public hearing on the proposed changes is held at each Section's January meeting.
Register of Ohio
