The materials posted here are draft rulemaking materials. They include proposals that are being discussed, older versions of these proposals, and other documents that may be submitted to the Office of Administrative Law that are in draft form. The Board will also post here any documents distributed at any public meeting during discussions of rulemaking. We will also post all written comments received regarding these proposals. If any proposals are moved forward into the rulemaking process in the Administrative Procedures Act and implemented by the Office of Administrative Law, those documents will be posted immediately below.

Public comment is greatly appreciated at all phases of rulemaking. Changes to these draft materials may be made before the rulemaking package is submitted to the Office of Administrative Law. Contact our Executive Officer at or Industrial Relations Counsel at
