Anyone may participate in the Ohio Department of Aging's rule-development process. Please contact our policy development manager at rules@age.ohio.gov to give input on improving ODA's rules. You may also contact the Common-Sense Initiative (CSI) office to give input on improving our rules. CSI's mission is to generate a more jobs-friendly regulatory climate in Ohio. CSI highlighted our achievements in improving Ohio's regulatory climate in its 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 annual reports.

Comment Periods

Before the Ohio Department of Aging files a rule proposal with the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) to begin the legislature's rule-review process, we generally publish the proposal on this web page in search of comments. Your participation in this stage of the rule-development process is very important. We may revise a rule or its business-impact analysis according to your comments.

Legislative Review

ODA files a rule proposal with the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR) to begin the legislature's rule-review process. The process requires ODA to conduct a public hearing 31-40 days after the original file date. Generally, 41-65 days after the original file date, JCARR schedules ODA to appear before a meeting concerning the rule proposal.
