Office of Administrative Law's February 25, 2005 "Decision of Disapproval" (PDF - 756K)

On February 9, 2005, the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) issued the above notice
disapproving the proposed amendments to the Statewide Portable Equipment Registration
Program regulation for the following reasons:

"The changes are unclear."

"The Board's responses to public comments that were submitted to it concerning the proposed changes are inadequate."

Pursuant to Government Code Section 11349.3(b), OAL will be issuing a written opinion detailing
the reasons for its disapproval by June 25, 2005.

Although OAL has not yet identified the specific respects in which it believes the regulatory action
did not comply with applicable requirements, OAL's action is clearly based on procedural grounds
only. ARB expects that it will be able to remedy the procedural deficiencies identified and resubmit
a final set of amendments to OAL within the 120-day period specified in Government Code
Section 11349.4(a). Under Government Code Section 11349.4(b), OAL reviews a resubmitted
regulatory action only for those reasons expressly identified in its earlier disapproval opinion, or for
issues arising as a result of changes to the regulatory provisions.
