SB 617 Rulemaking Documents

SB 617 (Chapter 496, Statutes of 2011) established additional regulatory impact assessment standards for state agencies promulgating regulations. Specifically, SB 617 requires state agencies to conduct a standardized regulatory impact assessment (SRIA) when it estimates that its proposed regulations have an economic impact that exceeds $50 million. Finance has adopted regulations for state agencies to follow when performing a SRIA for any major regulations. Finance is required to review the completed SRIA submitted by agencies and provide comment(s) to the agency on the extent to which the assessment adheres to the regulations adopted by Finance.

This page will provide information about the Department of Finance’s rulemaking actions regarding major regulations.
