• House Bill 1565: An Act Regarding Rulemaking
The recent Special Legislative Session voted into law HB 1565, an act regarding rulemaking. HB 1565 will impact the implementation of proposed revisions to chapter 64B19, Florida Administrative Code.
In order to comply with HB 1565, it is expected that the Board of Psychology will be asked to review an amended Statement of Estimated Regulatory Costs (SERC). If, based on the amended SERC, it is determined that the rule will reach a certain level of economic impact, the proposed rule will then need to be presented to the legislature. The legislature would have to ratify the rule before it can become effective."Below is a memo from Scott Boyd, Executive Director of the Joint Administrative Procedures Committee, which explains the legislative ratification of rules.
