State Representative Ross McGregor (R-Springfield) has announced that the Ohio House of Representatives passed House Bill 396, which revises rule-making and rule review procedures through the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review.

When enacted, House Bill 396 will give the legislature the ability to invalidate both proposed and existing rules by legislation rather than by concurrent resolution, require “no change” rules to be sent to the Common Sense Initiative Office and subject them to the sixth prong of adverse impact on business, extend the review time for proposed rules if the later version of the rule is rejected, modify procedural changes for the state auditor, and re-codify and correct legislative review sections of the Ohio Revised Code.

“I am very pleased that House Bill 396 passed today, as it works towards our continued efforts of streamlining government regulations, minimizing the unnecessary regulations, and helping ensure Ohio is a business-friendly state,” said Representative McGregor.

House Bill 396 passed unanimously from the House.
