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:
