Formal Rulemaking Matters Approved by the Office of Administrative Law
Rulemaking agencies, like the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, go through the regular rulemaking process outlined in the Administrative Procedure Act, which involves notice to the public, public comment and responses, and a review for necessity and clarity, to establish standards for interpreting and implementing statutes passed by the Legislature. Once completed, approved rulemakings are codified as a regulation with legal effect within the State. The Department’s approved regulatory packages can be found on the Approved Regulations page.
