    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, June 9, 2015 at 9 am in Salem. (Please contact the OSSP RAC Administrator for meeting materials and to confirm meeting time and location.)
