John P. McDonough, Secretary of State ~
Brian Morris, Acting Administrator, Division of State Documents
In accordance with State Government Article, §§10-130—10-139, Annotated Code of
Maryland, each State agency that adopts regulations must review those
regulations every 8 years, unless exempt under §10-132.1. The purpose of the
review is to determine whether the regulations are necessary for the public
interest, continue to be supported by statutory authority and judicial opinion,
or are appropriate for amendment or repeal.
The review is implemented by Executive Order 01.01.2003.20 which also sets the
schedule for performing the review. The evaluation report prepared by the
responsible agency is also submitted to the Administrative, Executive, and
Legislative Review Committee (AELR) of the General Assembly for approval.
At the option of the State agency, notices pertaining to the review process may
appear on this web site. Click on Agency Notices, below.
Questions regarding individual agency evaluations should be addressed to those
agencies. Questions regarding the evaluation process may be submitted through
our support link at firstname.lastname@example.org.
