SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Joint Commission on Administrative Rules; periodic review of regulations. Requires the Joint Commission on Administrative Rules, beginning January 1, 2019, and every year thereafter, to conduct a review of agency regulations. The bill also requires, beginning December 1, 2018, and every year thereafter on or before December 1, each agency promulgating a regulation to submit a written report to the Joint Commission on Administrative Rules including a summary of the necessity for the regulation and a summary of any rule or regulation adopted in the immediately preceding fiscal year, if any. The bill provides that in the event that an agency fails to submit the report required, the Joint Commission on Administrative Rules shall recommend to the Governor and the General Assembly that such agency's regulation be modified or suspended in accordance with the Administrative Process Act for legislative objections. The bill also requires general notice of the provisions of this requirement to be posted on the Virginia Regulatory Town Hall and published in the Virginia Register of Regulations by the Joint Commission on Administrative Rules to advise agencies of their obligations under the bill.
