01:55 PM -- SB 17-186



Representative Carver and Representative Lawrence introduced Senate Bill 17-186. The bill makes changes to state law related to the adoption of rules by state agencies that impact small businesses. The bill requires that, prior to the adoption of any rule, a state agency must prepare a regulatory flexibility analysis aimed at minimizing the impact of the rule on small businesses. The bill also requires state agencies proposing rules that likely impact small businesses to actively solicit representatives of small businesses to participate in the stakeholder groups, as well as to expand outreach and notification to small businesses that may not be represented by a trade association or lobbyist.
