This site is a service to provide the public with information about the Arizona Governor's Regulatory Review Council (Council), assistance available from Council staff, and the rulemaking process for Arizona rules and Arizona regulations.
Composed of seven members, the Council is chaired by Nicole Ong Colyer, the Assistant Director of Legal Services (General Counsel) for the Department of Administration. For most agencies, the Council is the final step in the rulemaking process for Arizona rules and Arizona regulations. The Council reviews Arizona rules to ensure that they are necessary and to avoid duplication and adverse impact on the public. The Council also assesses whether Arizona rules are beneficial, clear, consistent with legislative intent, legal, and within the agency's statutory authority. If an Arizona rule does not meet these criteria, the Council may return it to the agency for further consideration. The Council also reviews reports on existing Arizona rules and Arizona regulations.
The Secretary of State, not the Council, is responsible for the publication of Arizona rules and Arizona regulations. The Arizona Administrative Code and the Arizona Administrative Register are intended to be the authoritative sources for Arizona rules and Arizona regulations. Please visit azsos.gov/rules for more information.
