Public Meeting on Proposed Rule: Protection Against Invasive Species — Sticker Rules

Docket No. 26-0134-2201
Idaho Protection Against Invasive Species Sticker Rules Negotiated Rulemaking

Due to Executive Order 2020-01, Zero-Based Regulation, agencies are required to rewrite IDAPA chapters every 5 years on an approved schedule. This rulemaking is complying with this mandate and is scheduled for presentation to the 2023 Legislature. Under this Executive Order, the Department is repealing this chapter and placing it in the Idaho statute. This will prevent the accumulation of costly, ineffective, and outdated regulations and reduce the regulatory burden to achieve a more efficient operation of government.
