Status update on the petition for rulemaking

All,

 

Just a small status update on the petition for rulemaking that was submitted in June.  Published in today’s Register (a copy is attached) is a “Notification of Receipt of Petition for Rulemaking.”  This notice does little except confirm that the DCA has received our request.
The DCA still has 60 days to act on our petition – whether that is to publish as rulemaking for public comment, request additional time for review, or to deny the request.  Based on my calculation 60 days from the June 24, 2019 receipt is August 23, 2019.  So, by the end of August we will know what the DCA’s course of action is on our petition.
If you have not done so already, I would ask that you have help spread the word to your municipalities and ask them to pass the Resolution of support that I have drafted.  A copy of this is attached.  I have already received copies from several municipalities that have adopted this resolution.

If anyone has any question please do not hesitate to contact me.  Thank you all for your work on this.-Frank
