      In accordance with Executive Order 2020-01: Zero-Based Regulation, the Industrial Commission is striving to prevent the accumulation of costly, ineffective, and outdated regulations and reduce regulatory burden to achieve a more efficient operation of government. This year, the Commission will reexamine IDAPA 17.11.01- Administrative Rules of the Peace Officer and Detention Officer Disability Fund . The rule changes are intended to perform a comprehensive review of this chapter by collaborating with the public to streamline or simplify this rule language.

      NEW 17.01.01- Administrative Rules Under the Worker’s Compensation Law
      Temporary Rule

      HB 590 repealed IC 72-404 and replaced it with a new version of the statute which removes Commission responsibility to approve settlements in most cases. Accordingly, the Commission no longer has an interest in requiring claimants to specify how unpaid medical bills will be treated at the time of settlement. Removing this section of IDAPA is consistent with the new provisions of I.C. 72-404.

      Please visit the Office of the Administrative Rules Coordinator for more information.

      The Idaho Legislature did not renew the existing administrative rules at the end of the 2019 Legislative session. In April, the Governor’s Office directed the Industrial Commission to take the necessary steps to minimize the impact of the rules expiring. In January, the Governor signed the Red Tape Reduction Act, requiring agencies to cut down on rule sections to make the chapters as simple as possible. To meet the direction of the Governor, the Commission will bring forward rule chapter revisions for when the rules expire on July 1st. These revisions will follow a special process put in place by the Division of Financial Management for final approval by the Governor’s Office. All changes are strictly to consolidate information per the Red Tape Reduction Act. There will be no substantive changes.
