Bill giving Governor, Cabinet more authority on rules moves forward
A House bill that would give the governor and Cabinet more power to repeal rules passed through a subcommittee with no discussion.
HB 993 would allow Cabinet members during their first six months in office to repeal rules if they are obsolete or if they conflict with policies they are trying to implement. The repeal could be challenged, but Cabinet members could individually override the challenge. An objection to the override could be filed with the 1st District Court of Appeal.
