A Convenient Guide to Regulatory Activity in the Commonwealth
The Regulatory Alert is intended to assist General Assembly members with tracking of the myriad regulations being proposed by agencies in the Commonwealth. The goal of this project is to provide a timely, simple and accurate summary of the rules that are being proposed by agencies, boards, and commissions. Highlighting regulations when they are published as proposed regulations should alert General Assembly members that the critical public participation phase of the rulemaking process is well underwayit is during the public participation process that the questions of a member or constituent may be most effectively communicated to the agency and examined by the individuals crafting the regulatory proposal.
The Regulatory Alert is not intended to be a substitute for the comprehensive information on agency rulemaking activity that is currently published biweekly in the Virginia Register of Regulations or the notification services offered by the Regulatory Town Hall web site maintained by the Department of Planning and Budget. It is hoped that this addition to the Legislative Record will assist all members as they monitor the development, modification and repeal of administrative rules in the Commonwealth.
