Any person may petition the Governor’s Regulatory Review Council to request a review of a final rule based on the person’s belief that the final rule does not meet the requirements of Arizona Revised Statute (ARS) 41-1030.

Arizona Revised Statue (ARS) 1030 states that:

  • A rule is invalid unless it is made and approved in substantial compliance with sections 41-1021 through 41-1029 and articles 4, 4.1 and 5 of this chapter, unless otherwise provided by law.
  • An agency shall not base a licensing decision in whole or in part on a licensing requirement or condition that is not specifically authorized by statute, rule or state tribal gaming compact. A general grant of authority in statute does not constitute a basis for imposing a licensing requirement or condition unless a rule is made pursuant to that general grant of authority that specifically authorizes the requirement or condition.
  • An agency shall not make a rule under a specific grant of rulemaking authority that exceeds the subject matter areas listed in the specific statute authorizing the rule.
  • An agency shall not make a rule under a general grant of rulemaking authority to supplement a more specific grant of rulemaking authority.
