School Facility Program Proposed Regulatory Changes

New and/or amended regulations have been approved by the State Allocation Board (SAB). SAB approval and the effective date of regulations are two different things. Until the regulations become effective, the following is provided simply as a helpful preview for your information.

The timing of when the regulations become effective depends upon whether or not the regulations were approved by the SAB on an emergency basis. Typically, emergency regulatory tracts take approximately 30-45 days to become an effective emergency regulation after they are approved by the State Allocation Board and prior to filing with the Office of Administrative Law (OAL). Non-emergency regulatory tracts take 120-180 days from the date the SAB approves the agenda item until the regulation(s) become effective.
