Rulemaking initiated to adopt the existing and previously approved codified IDAPA 58 non-fee rule chapters.
Status of Rulemaking
Proposed rule published in the October 20, 2021 Idaho Administrative Bulletin. Written comment deadline November 10, 2021.
This proposed rulemaking publishes the rule chapters previously submitted to and reviewed by the Idaho Legislature under IDAPA 58, rules of the Department of Environmental Quality. The proposed rules are described and listed below.
On May 20, 2021, the Idaho Board of Environmental Quality (Board) adopted, as temporary rules effective July 1, 2021, the existing and previously approved codified IDAPA 58 rule chapters. This action included the revisions in Docket Nos. 58-0102-2001, 58-0103-1901, and 58-0122-1901 adopted by the Board as pending rule dockets in 2020 and submitted to the First Regular Session of the 66th Idaho Legislature for review (2021 session). The pending rule dockets are posted in the 2021 Legislative Rules Review Books for the Senate Resources & Environment and House Environment, Energy & Technology Committees. This proposed rule docket includes the temporary rules adopted by the Board in May 2021.
This docket also includes zero-based regulation (ZBR) review chapter IDAPA 58.01.23. Revisions were negotiated in compliance with Executive Order No. 2020-01, Zero-Based Regulation (EO 2020-01), issued by Governor Little on January 16, 2020. The goal of the rulemaking is to perform a critical and comprehensive review of the entire chapter in an attempt to reduce overall regulatory burden, streamline various provisions, and increase clarity and ease of use.

As a result of negotiated rulemaking, the remaining sections of IDAPA 58.01.21 (016.02 and 017) were moved into IDAPA 58.01.23, and the chapter was renamed “Contested Case Rules and Rules for Protection and Disclosure of Records.”
