People with government and state agencies use that word, but what does it mean? “Promulgate means to formally proclaim or declare a new statutory or administrative law as in effect after it receives final approval. It means to make known, announce, or declare officially.” Source

For these rules, the first step means they are going before a sub-committee to be discussed and possibly voted upon. The State ALC-ADMINISTRATIVE RULES & REGULATIONS committee on Tuesday, September 12 at 1pm. If you want to be present, check out the agenda and the location. So far this is the only time it’s shown on the agenda.

According to the Arkansas State Legislature website, “this subcommittee reviews matters regarding administrative rules and regulations by state agencies, boards, and commissions as required by A.C.A. 10-3-309, and such other matters pertaining to administrative organization, rules, regulations, and procedures as may be assigned to the subcommittee by the Legislative Council.”

Here are the members of the council:
