Pending Rulemaking Docket

Rulemaking in Minnesota follows procedures outlined in the Minnesota Administrative Procedure Act (APA), Minnesota Statutes, chapter 14. State agencies in Minnesota are required by Minnesota Statutes, section 14.366 to maintain a current, public rulemaking docket. The docket must contain a list of pending rulemaking proceedings or possible proposed rules under consideration by the agency. These proceedings include proposing new rules, amending existing rules, or repealing obsolete rules.

The docket below is an overview of current rulemaking proceedings within the Office of Administrative Hearings:

Proposed Permanent Rules Relating to Sanitary Districts, Boundary Petitions, and Proceedings
Minnesota Rules, chapter 1408

Revisor File Number: R-4407

OAH Docket Number: 72-9023-33502

Subject matter:
The Minnesota Office of Administrative Hearings (the Agency) proposes to adopt permanent rules of procedure to govern matters relating to the creation, annexation, detachment or dissolution of sanitary districts. The proposed permanent rules would align the procedures in these cases with current statutes, familiar rules of administrative procedure and best practices, as well as with the interim rules which govern sanitary district proceedings, adopted on January 26, 2015. In this proceeding, the Office of Administrative Hearings seeks to adopt those interim rules as permanent rules.

Status: The Office of Administrative Hearings published a Notice of Intent to Adopt Rules without a Public Hearing in the State Register on May 8, 2017 (See 41 SR 1283-1287).  A copy of the Notice of Intent, proposed rules and Statement of Need and Reasonableness are available below.

Contact person: Written comments, questions, requests to receive a draft of the rules, and requests for more information on these proposed rules should be directed to:
