DIGEST OF SB259 (Updated February 15, 2005 4:07 pm - DI 84)

Rulemaking by instrumentalities of the state. Specifies that an instrumentality of state government (including a body corporate and politic or other corporation exercising essential government functions) is an agency for purposes of the rulemaking procedures set forth in IC 4- 22-2. Prohibits certain instrumentalities from adopting rules without complying with IC 4-22-2. Authorizes instrumentalities to adopt rules necessary or appropriate to perform their duties and exercise their powers. Requires instrumentalities of state government to submit rules: (1) in effect before July 1, 2005; and (2) adopted at or after a public meeting of the instrumentality, but not in compliance with IC 4-22-2; to the publisher of the Indiana Register and the Indiana Administrative Code for assignment of a document control number. Requires an instrumentality to submit the rule to the secretary of state for filing after the assignment of the document control number. Requires the secretary of state to submit copies of a rule accepted for filing to the attorney general. Allows, rather than requires, the attorney general to review the rule for legality and to disapprove a rule for specified reasons. Provides that if the attorney general does not issue a notice of disapproval before October 2, 2006, the rule: (1) is considered approved; and (2) must be published in the Indiana Register and the Indiana Administrative Code. (The introduced version of this bill was prepared by the code revision commission.)
