Governor's Regulatory Review Council (GRRC)
For most agencies, the Council is the final step in the rulemaking process. The Council is composed of seven members and is chaired by the Director of the Department of Administration or designee, who serves ex-officio. While tasked with several responsibilities, the Council has two primary functions. First, the Council is the final step in the rulemaking process for most state agencies. The Council reviews proposed rules, unless exempted from Council review by statute, to ensure that the proposed rules are necessary and to avoid duplication and adverse impact on the public. The Council assesses whether a rule is clear, concise, and understandable, legal, consistent with legislative intent, within the agency's statutory authority, and whether the benefits of a rule outweigh the cost. If a rule does not meet these criteria, the Council returns it to the agency for further consideration. Secondly, the Council is responsible for conducting five-year reviews. Arizona law requires an agency to review its rules every five years to determine whether the rules need to be amended or repealed. After doing this review, the agency is required to submit a report of its findings to the Council, which will approve the report or return it to the agency for additional work.
