Rule Proposals

Interested persons may submit comments or information concerning any of the rule proposals in the New Jersey Register until the date indicated in the proposal. Submissions and any inquires about submission should be addressed to the agency officer specified for a particular proposal.

The department allows a minimum period of 60 days for comments concerning rule proposals. On occasion, a proposing agency may extend the 60-day comment period in the heading of a proposal or in a subsequent notice in the register. At the close of the period for comments, the proposing agency may thereafter adopt a proposal, without change, or with changes not in violation of the rulemaking procedures at N.J.A.C. 1:30-4.3. The adoption becomes effective upon publication in the Register of a notice adoption, unless otherwise indicated in the adoption notice. Promulgation in the New Jersey Register establishes a new or amended rule as an official part of the New Jersey Administrative Code. (Source: The New Jersey Register)
