What counts as a “public comment” for purposes of the Existing Rules Review?

A “public comment” is defined by G.S. § 150B-21.3A(a)(5) as a written objection to all or part of a rule. Additionally, G.S. § 150B-21.3A(c)(2) says that in order for the Rules Review Commission to determine whether the public comment has merit:

  1. The public comment must address the specific substance of the rule, and
  2. The public comment must address any of the standards of Commission review, as set forth in G.S. § 150B-21.9(a).
