Regulatory Efficiency Review

Purpose

To ensure rules are effective, efficient and essential.

Executive Order D 2012-002 (EO 2), later codified by the Colorado General Assembly at Section 24-4-103.3 CRS (2014), requires that state agencies review, on a continuing basis, all existing rules to ensure they use the best, most innovative and least burdensome tools for achieving their goals. This periodic review and evaluation of rules is a core component of the Department’s regulatory administrative process.

State agencies are also required to provide an appropriate opportunity for public input. In doing so, the Department is allowed the flexibility to structure public input to fit the particular issues and circumstances of the rules under review. Specifically, the public must be given a meaningful opportunity to comment on the existing rules under review in the context of the criteria established.
