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.
