2022 – Assembly Bill 1996 (Cooley, Ken), Regulations Review (Dead)
Would have required, by January 1, 2026, each State agency to review all of its regulations for duplicative, overlapping, inconsistent, or out-of-date regulations; hold a public hearing to accept comment on proposed revisions to identified regulations; adopt, amend, or repeal regulations to reconcile identified issues; and report to the Governor and Legislature on compliance with these requirements. The bill would also have required overseeing agencies to notify their boards, departments, and offices of regulations that are duplicative, overlapping, or inconsistent with those adopted by another department, board, or office within the agency. This bill would have had a sunset date of January 1, 2027. Held on suspense in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
