Rules Training

The Administrative Law Division assists those involved in the rule promulgation process to produce rules that meet the prescribed style and format requirements by conducting free monthly training and by providing group training for agencies.  In this training we cover the format and style requirements for rules and instruct how to properly file and publish notice of rulemaking and rules with the Administrative Law Division.

With legislative changes to the State Rules Act set to occur on July 1, 2017, the Administrative Law Division is in the process of training rulemaking agencies to conform with the technical aspects of the amended State Rules Act.  In addition, we also cover the specifics of what should and should not be done for any rulemaking, paying particular attention to the format and style requirements for any document submitted for filing and for publication in the New Mexico register.

We hope that all persons who are responsible for any part of their agency rule making should attend the free monthly training, even if they may have taken one or both online courses in the past.  Again because of the recent changes to take effect, rule making training is substantially different than before.  The Commission of Public Records has produced a manual to help in writing and formatting rules.  The manual is normally available for $22.50, but it is given to each participant at the training free of charge.
