General FAQs

 

How do I submit public comments on an administrative regulation?

         To be notified when a regulation is filed, register for RegWatch. The state agency that filed the regulation will send you information regarding the filed regulation including information about the public comment period.

         The public hearing and public comment period information is printed as part of the regulation in the Administrative Register of Kentucky and on the LRC Web site. Either:

-      View the online PDF version of the Administrative Register of Kentucky

-      Purchase a subscription to the paper version of the Administrative Register of Kentucky - Order Form;

-      View the online. (Select the green "reg" version of an administrative regulation to find the proposed language and information regarding the public hearing and public comment period.)

 

 

Previous versions of administrative regulations

         At this time, only current, effective regulations and regulations going through the promulgation process are available on the LRC Web site.

         Archived editions of the Administrative Register of Kentucky are available online beginning with the July 1999 edition, the first publication from Register year 26.

         The fastest way to obtain previous versions is to visit the Regulations Compiler's Office in the Capitol Annex; 702 Capital Ave, Room 29; Frankfort, KY 40601.

         As time allows, the Regulations Compiler's Office may be able to fulfill a request for information. Please call or email the information to the Regulations Compiler. (It helps to know the regulation number and a specific effective date or timeframe.)

         For larger requests, it may be necessary to visit the Regulations Compiler's Office in person to view and copy the information.

         For copies of Material Incorporated by Reference, contact the promulgating agency. For administrative regulations effective after 1988, the agency contact information is usually provided in the last section of the regulation.

         Please keep in mind that LRC Staff cannot give legal advice.

 

 

How do I testify at a meeting of the Administrative Regulation Review Subcommittee?

To testify at a meeting, you need to fill out a guest slip form. Once you have filled out this form, please take it to staff at the front of the room. The presiding co-chair uses the information from the guest slips to provide interested parties the opportunity to speak during the meetings. The information is also used by staff in preparation of the minutes to have the correct spelling of your name as well as identifying information about the organization or agency represented.
