DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Administrative rules oversight committee. Reduces the membership of the administrative rules oversight committee (committee) from eight legislative members to four legislative members plus the governor or the governor's designee. Sets forth procedures for the appointment of: (1) legislative members of the committee; and (2) the committee chair; to more closely align to the actual schedule of appointments made before the election of the one hundred eighteenth general assembly. Permits members to participate in committee meetings from remote locations if at least three members are physically present at the place where the meeting is held. Changes the function of the committee from reviewing citizen complaints concerning state agency actions to reviewing rules proposed by certain state agencies. Provides that the committee's review applies to the proposed rules of the same state agencies subject to the committee's oversight under current law. Provides that the committee's review must occur at the same time that the proposed rules are being reviewed by the attorney general. Permits the committee to recommend that the governor approve or disapprove a proposed rule.
