Self-Sufficiency Programs Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM)

A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) is filed with when DHS proposes to adopt, amend, or repeal a rule. The NPRM shows proposed rule changes (see below for instructions on how to read proposed rule revisions), opens the public comment period, and announces the date, time, and location of a public hearing. The public is welcome and encouraged to provide feedback on proposed rule changes during the public comment period in writing or in person at the public hearing. For questions about the public comment process, or to receive rule notifications by email, please contact Kris Skaro, DHS Rules Coordinator, at kris.a.skaro@state.or.us or 503-945-6067.

    OSSP Rules Advisory Committee:

    A Rule Advisory Committee (RAC) must be used prior to giving notice of intent to adopt, amend, or repeal rules in which there are issues that will substantially impact the public. (See DHS-010-012) The purpose of a RAC is to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to participate in the rule development process. The OSSP RAC includes members who represent the interests of persons likely to be affected by proposed rules including client advocates, provider representatives, public policy organizations, and other stakeholders. Meetings are open to the public, although participation is limited to members of the OSSP RAC. For more information about the OSSP RAC, please contact the OSSP RAC Administrator.

     

    The next OSSP RAC meeting is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 9 am in Salem. (Please contact Kris Skaro to confirm meeting time and location.)

  • Summaries and draft fiscal impact statements of rule changes currently under review by the OSSP RAC are available here and rule text showing proposed edits is available here.

    How to read proposed rule revisions:

    Underlined language is new.
    Strikeout langauge is being deleted.

    The following may be typed near the top of the first page of a rule:

     

    * This is a New Rule - indicates this is all new language to be adopted.
    * This Rule Has Been Revised in its Entirety- indicates that a major portion of the rule has been altered so that showing changes is too cumbersome and difficult to read. The entire current version of the rule will be shown with strikeout followed by the entire revised rule underlined.
    * This Rule is Repealed - indicates the entire rule (rule number/language) is being deleted.
