2020 Administrative Rulemaking

Due to the unique nature of the 2020 Rulemaking process, the Commission has posted the following changes, summaries, and public hearing transcript in an effort to make the changes transparent and easier to understand. The Commission’s previous thirteen (13) IDAPA chapters were reduced and simplified into three (3) IDAPA chapters.

Changes were made to eliminate rules already in statue, combine sections, and make the rules more accessible to the public. The consolidation of these chapters is recapped in the summary of changes and the track changes of sections. New to the rulemaking process this year, agencies were required to develop cover pages summarizing each IDAPA chapter. As a result, sections of the rules were removed and summarized in these cover pages. If you have any questions, please contact (208) 334-6000 or commissionsecretary@iic.idaho.gov.

Public Hearing Transcript of August 6, 2019

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.

 

Comments and feedback for these rules will be considered and can be submitted to the Commission Secretary Kamerron Monroe, via physical or email correspondence. Written comments will be accepted until 5:00pm on Friday, August 16th. 

All Temporary and Proposed Rules will be effective June 30th.
