WEEKLY NOTICES OF STATE RULE-MAKING
Public Input for Proposed and Adopted Rules
Notices are published each Wednesday to alert the public regarding state agency rule-making. You may obtain a copy of any
rule by notifying the agency contact person. You may also comment on the rule, and/or attend the public hearing. If no
hearing is scheduled, you may request one -- the agency may then schedule a hearing, and must do so if 5 or more persons
request it. If you are disabled or need special services to attend a hearing, please notify the agency contact person at least 7
days prior to it. Petitions: you can petition an agency to adopt, amend, or repeal any rule; the agency must provide you with
petition forms, and must respond to your petition within 60 days. The agency must enter rule-making if the petition is signed
by 150 or more registered voters, and may begin rule-making if there are fewer. You can also petition the Legislature to
review a rule; the Executive Director of the Legislative Council (115 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333, phone
207/287-1615) will provide you with the necessary petition forms. The appropriate legislative committee will review a rule
upon receipt of a petition from 100 or more registered voters, or from "...any person who may be directly, substantially and
adversely affected by the application of a rule..." (Title 5 Section 11112). World-Wide Web: Copies of the weekly notices
and the full texts of adopted rule chapters may be found on the internet at: http://www.maine.gov/sos/cec/rules. There is also
a list of rule-making liaisons, who are single points of contact for each agency.
