May 2020 Meeting of the Idaho Board of Environmental Quality - Pending Rule

Rulemaking Documents Required by Idaho Administrative Procedure Act


DEQ initiated this rulemaking in response to Executive Order No. 2019-02, Red Tape Reduction Act, issued by Governor Little on January 21, 2019. Upon review of its existing rules, DEQ determined that its two facility planning grant rule chapters could be simplified and consolidated into a single chapter. DEQ proposes to delete IDAPA 58.01.04, Rules for Administration of Wastewater Treatment Facility Grants, and merge necessary and relevant sections of IDAPA 58.01.04 with IDAPA 58.01.22, Rules for Administration of Planning Grants for Public Drinking Water Facilities. DEQ has initiated a separate rulemaking for the deletion of IDAPA 58.01.04 (Docket No. 58-0104-1901).
