Regulatory Agendas

Under the City Administrative Procedure Act, agencies are required to publish annual regulatory agendas indicating what rules they plan to issue in the upcoming fiscal year.  Agendas include:

  • A brief description of the subject areas in which new rules are anticipated and a justification for why such areas are under consideration
  • A summary of each anticipated rule, its objectives, and legal basis
  • A description of the individuals and organizations that will likely be subject to the rule
  • A listing of relevant federal, state and local laws and rules
  • An approximate schedule for adopting the anticipated rule
  • A contact person for further information

Regulatory agendas are published no later than May 1st of each year.  Not every agency publishes rules each year, and therefore not every agency has a regulatory agenda.   In addition, sometimes agencies need to publish rules even though they did not anticipate doing so in their agenda.  In those instances, the agency will explain the reason the rule was not anticipated as part of the proposed rule.
