How rule-making works

When OFM State Human Resources officially announces a rule, we do so through permanent rule-making or emergency rule-making.

Permanent rule-making process

Stage 1: A Proposed Rule-making (CR-102 form) and the proposed rule language are filed with the Code Reviser's Office. Notice of the public hearing date and comment period are provided on the CR-102 form.

Stage 2: A Rule-making Order of Adoption (CR-103 form) and the final rule language are filed with the Code Reviser's Office. The agency responds to public comments in the Concise Explanatory Statement.

Stage 3: The rule becomes effective 30 days after filing the CR-103 form with the Code Reviser's Office unless a later date is stated on the CR-103 form.

Emergency rule-making process

Stage 1: A Rule-making Order of Adoption (CR-103 form) and the rule-adoption language are filed with the Code Reviser's Office.

Stage 2: The rule becomes effective upon filing, unless a later date is specified.
