All rules shall expire five years after the year in which the rule takes effect, unless the rule contains an earlier expiration date. All rules in effect on January 1, 2022, shall expire on January 1, 2027. The expiration date shall be extended each time that an unexpired rule is amended and the requirement of rescinded unnecessary, obsolete, or burdensome rules shall not apply to orders of rulemaking reauthorizing expiring rules.
Additionally, these provisions shall not apply to proposed or existing rules promulgated by a board, commission, committee, council, or office assigned to the Division of Professional Registration.
No later than a year after the review report on an agency's rules is filed, this act requires that each agency amend or rescind rules identified as unnecessary, obsolete, overlapping, duplicating or conflicting with other state rules, accomplished by a less restrictive rule, or burdensome unless the agency provides good cause.
