Regulatory Analysis & Impact Analyses

OSBM reviews the fiscal and regulatory impact analysis of permanent rule changes proposed by State Executive Branch agencies. OSBM bases its approval of the analyses on the requirements in the Administrative Procedure Act and Executive Order No. 70 (as amended by Executive Order No. 48), and the instructions in the State Budget Manual (section 7). After OSBM review, the Rules Review Commission, supported by the Office of Administrative Hearings, conducts a review for legal authorization and clarity.
