The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has the authority, granted by the Legislature, to create regulations called “rules” which although not state law,have the force of law.  The complete set of rules under the power of the Commission can be found here. The handout From Proposal to Regulation describes the Commission's rule-making procedures. Below is a list of the rules the Commission is currently proposing to change, a description of each, and avenues for comment. The procedure for subjecting a proposed rule to legislative review can be found to the right.


We welcome your feedback. Comments may be sent to regulations@ncwildlife.org.

Subjecting a Proposed Rule to Legislative Review 

If an objection is not resolved prior to the adoption of the rule, a person may also submit written objections to the Rules Review Commission. If the Rules Review Commission receives written and signed objections in accordance with G.S.150B-21.3(b2) from 10 or more persons clearly requesting review by the legislature and the Rules Review Commission approves the rule, the rule will become effective as provided in G.S.150B-21.3(b1). The  Rules Review Commission will receive written objections until 5:00 p.m. on the day following the day the Rules Review Commission approves the rule. The Rules Review Commission will receive those objections by mail, delivery service, hand delivery, or facsimile transmission.If you have any further questions concerning the submission of objections to the Rules Review Commission, please call a staff attorney at 919-431-3000.
