Description

HB225 raised a number of significant concerns. Perhaps most importantly, the measure granted a number of individual political appointees exclusive veto power over rules adopted after extensive public and technical hearings—even though those individuals weren’t part of the rulemaking process. The measure also authorized legislative committees—both standing and interim—to alter the effective date of a rule, which was unconstitutional.

Outcome

HB225 died in the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
