Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules (LCAR)
Proposed rules must go through a public hearing process before they become final proposed rules reviewed by LCAR.
For notices of proposed rules postings, please visit the Secretary of State's Proposed Rules Postings website.
When a rule is on the committee's agenda, contact Charlene Dindo (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least 48 hours in advance if you want to testify. Each document on the rule (including handouts, testimony, and proposals for change to the rule) must be submitted to Ms. Dindo at least two business days before the meeting. The submission should include 10 physical copies and one electronic copy of the document. Documents not submitted to committee staff will not be considered.
The committee meets every Thursday from 8 - 9 a.m. during legislative session. When legislature is out of session, the committee meets every two weeks: on Thursdays, from 10 a.m. - 12 or 1 p.m. Meetings are held in the Ethan Allen Room on the second floor of the State House, behind the cafeteria, unless otherwise noted.
