Description

Joint Commission on Administrative Rules; periodic review of exemptions from the Administrative Process Act. Requires the Joint Commission on Administrative Rules, beginning November 1, 2017, and every two years thereafter, to conduct a review of the exemptions authorized by the Administrative Process Act (APA). The bill also requires agencies having APA exemptions, beginning August 1, 2017, and every two years thereafter on or before August 1, to submit a written report to the Joint Commission on Administrative Rules, which report includes the date the exemption was enacted, a summary of the necessity for the exemption, and a summary of any rule or regulation adopted pursuant to the exemption in the immediately preceding two fiscal years, if any. The bill provides that in the event that an agency having an exemption fails to submit the report required, the Joint Commission on Administrative Rules shall recommend to the Governor and the General Assembly that such agency's exemption be discontinued. The bill also requires general notice of the provisions of this requirement to be posted on the Virginia Regulatory Town Hall and published in the Virginia Register of Regulations by the Joint Commission on Administrative Rules to advise agencies of their obligations under the bill. Amends § 2.2-4005, § 30-73.3, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
