Once adopted by the Board, the regulation is submitted to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) for approval and submittal to the Secretary of State. OAL has 30 working days to approve or deny the regulation. If approved and submitted to the Secretary of State, the regulation becomes effective on a quarterly basis (January 1, April 1, July 1 or October 1) depending on the date OAL approves and submits to Secretary of State, unless it is a "Horcher," in which case the effective date is the same as the date the regulation is submitted to the Secretary of State.
