09:28 AM --
Christy Chase, Managing Senior Attorney, Office of Legislative Legal Service, testified before the Committee. Ms. Chase presented the Office's memorandum concerning the uncontested Division of Professions and Occupations rule issues to the Committee and recommended that the rules listed in the memo not be extended.



Representative Willett asked whether agencies are trying to get the Committee's attention concerning gaps in the law by enacting rules that are outside of the law so that they will be caught and discussed, as opposed to using a legislative liaison to come to a member to propose legislation. Ms. Chase said that it was not her understanding that agencies were intending to specifically adopt a rule that violates the statute or is outside of their authority.
