Rules Review

Five-Year Rule Review

Ohio Revised Code Section 119.032 requires agencies to review all rules at least every five years to assure they are current, relevant and essential. In addition, the Board may promulgate new or amend existing rules to update its regulatory matrix; not infrequently, the Board engages in rule updates and revisions in response to needs identified by the Board or through stakeholder input, or in response to legislative or executive actions. A general guide to the Board's rule promulgation and amendment process is available at the link on the bottom of this page.

Common Sense Initiative

The Common Sense Initiative requires the Board to reach out to stakeholders early in the rule promulgation process to capture as much feedback as possible regarding how the rule language may affect stakeholders and whether there are undue or unanticipated costs imposed by the proposed language. CSI review is generally focused on four (4) issues for consideration:

(1) Is more flexibility at the local level required?

(2) Does the rule present an opportunity to eliminate unnecessary paperwork and does it reference a text that is incorporated appropriately?

(3) Does the rule overlap or conflict with other rules?

(4) Does the rule have an adverse impact on businesses that has not been eliminated or reduced?

After considering stakeholder input, a rule may be amended or filed as is with the Office of Common Sense Initiative. The Board is required to file a Business Impact Analysis (BIA), which explains the rule, whether stakeholder input was used. Once filed with the CSI office, stakeholders have another opportunity to address the rule and the BIA by filing comments with the CSI Office.

Please reference information below regarding the current proposal. This page will be updated as the process moves between the Board, the Office of the Common Sense Initiative, and the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review.
