Joint Committee on Administrative Rules

Next JCAR Meeting:


The Joint Committee on Administrative Rules is a statutorily created bipartisan legislative committee, comprised of 5 house and 5 senate members, which is responsible for the legislative oversight of administrative rules proposed by state agencies. The committee maintains a nonpartisan staff in downtown Lansing that is responsible for processing rules transmitted to the committee by state agencies, scheduling committee hearings at the direction of the committee chair, providing members with the background and legal analysis of the rules, and reviewing proposed legislation to determine whether rulemaking authority is, or should be, necessary to carry out the legislative intent of proposed legislation.
