The Rulemaking Process

{ISAC Rules, Section 5375.100}

ISAC staff develop proposed rules and submit them for public comment through publication in the Illinois Register. All written public comments submitted on proposed ISAC rules and amendments are presented to the Commission for consideration. After receiving the Executive Director's recommendation and written comments from the public, the Commission votes to accept, modify or reject the proposed rules and amendments. After disposition by the Commission, the proposed rules and amendments are submitted to the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) for review.

When the JCAR review period has ended, ISAC will file the rules and amendments with the Office of the Secretary of State for publication in the Illinois Register.
