Action:
Amendment of Guidelines for Public Participation in Regulation Development and Promulgation to Reflect Changes in the Administrative Process Act
 
General Information
Action Summary This regulatory action will establish policies and procedures for public participation in the development and promulgation of regulations by TAX. This regulatory action will amend TAX’s Guidelines for Public Participation in Regulation Development and Promulgation (23 VAC 10-10-10, et seq.) (“Guidelines”) to reflect the establishment of the Virginia Regulatory Town Hall (“Town Hall”) and amendments to the Administrative Process Act (“APA”) made subsequent to the promulgation of the Guidelines. This action will amend (1) 23 VAC 10-10-10 to conform to changes in the APA regarding the procedures for interested parties to petition TAX to promulgate or revise regulations; (2) 23 VAC 10-10-20 to allow TAX to place more reliance on the Town Hall as a resource for identifying and notifying parties interested in its regulatory activities; (3) 23 VAC 10-10-30 to allow TAX to omit the issuance of a Notice of Intended Regulatory Action (“NOIRA”) when a NOIRA is not required by the APA; (4) 23 VAC 10-10-40 to allow TAX to place more reliance on the Town Hall as a resource for notifying interested parties of the issuance of a NOIRA; (5) 23 VAC 10-10-70 to take advantage of changes in the APA to eliminate the current requirement that notice of any public hearing regarding a proposed regulatory action be publicized in a newspaper of general circulation in the state capital; (6) 23 VAC 10-10-70 to eliminate the requirement that TAX mail notice concerning any proposed regulatory action to interested parties and to comply with the mandate of Executive Order 36 (2006) requiring TAX to post such notice on the Town Hall; and (7) the chapter generally to delete unnecessary provisions paraphrasing clear and unambiguous provisions of the APA. This action will also repeal 23 VAC 10-10-90, which requires TAX to physically print and distribute any regulation.
