08:27:20 AM  

Ms. Berman presented the Office's proposal to repeal the notice to members concerning rule making and provided background on the proposal, including the number of notices that are sent to sponsors and co-sponsors of legislation and how some notices are sent years after legislation has passed.

Representative Herod and Ms. Berman discussed the possibility of sending notices only to sponsors and not to co-sponsors.

Representative Weissman and Ms. Berman discussed the possibility of scaling back the notice requirements while preserving the core function of the notices sent to members.

Representative Herod and Ms. Berman discussed how notices are sent to members about rules being adopted based on bills that passed many years ago.

Representative Soper and Ms. Berman discussed whether notices are sent when a rule is modified.
