Action:
Fast-track revisions to include changes needed as a result of Chapter 795 of the 2012 Acts of Assembly (Revision D17)
 
General Information
Action Summary Agencies and Boards are required by §2.2-4007.02 A. of the Code of Virginia to adopt public participation guidelines to solicit input during the development of regulations. The current regulations are based on model public participation guidelines (PPGs) developed by the Virginia Department of Planning and Budget (DPB). Approximately 100 rulemaking bodies in Virginia have used DPB’s model PPGs as a basis for adopting regulations concerning public participation guidelines. Chapter 795 of the 2012 Acts of Assembly revised § 2.2-4007.02 B of the Code of Virginia to allow interested parties the right to be accompanied by or represented by counsel during the formulation of a regulation. As a result, DPB revised their model PPGs and DEQ is amending this regulation to be consistent with state statute and DPB’s model PPGs.
