Regs Review

January 24, 2017

Today was the opening meeting of the Legislative Regulation Review Committee. It is a completely bipartisan committee that reviews regulations proposed by state agencies and approves them before they are implemented.

While the Legislative Regulation Review Committee has been in existence since 1972, it was a November 24, 1982 amendment to the State's Constitution which provided the authority for the General Assembly to adopt the current structure of the committee.

This joint bipartisan committee is made up of 14 members: 6 senators and 8 representatives divided equally by party. In keeping with the bipartisan nature of the committee the chairmanship of the committee changes every two years.
