Proposed Rules


On March 6, 2017, the Department filed a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking with the Office of the Secretary of State to reduce fees for certain dam safety inspections and dam safety inspection reports and reduce the licensing time-frames for certain applications.  Additionally, the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking proposes to repeal two antiquated time-frames and correct the legal authorities cited for a number of applications and licenses in the licensing time-frame rule. The Department has received permission from the Governor’s Office to conduct this rulemaking.
