When the legislature passes a statute or law, they do so using broad terms and specifications. The executive branch is responsible for executing and enforcing these laws. To do so, they must create more detailed regulations through the rulemaking process. Some of the purposes of rulemaking are to add expertise, implementation details, and flexibility to the laws. It is during this rulemaking process that individuals have the opportunity to comment on the proposed rules. CCDC wishes to encourage people in the disability community to add their voice and thereby influence the direction the rule of law may take.
CCDC suggests participation with the following rules open for comment. Please use the link to find specific information about the proposed rule and how to submit your comment. If CCDC has submitted its own comment, that link is included. If you have any questions about CCDC comments or would like to have your comments reviewed for publication on our site, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
