- Post classifications of rules during the every-10-years review of our existing rules.

Legal basis for the List: We maintain this list both because we want to share information with people interested in our work and because we are required to do so. The law requiring the list is G.S. § 150B-21.2(d):
“An agency must maintain a mailing list of persons who have requested notice of rule making. When an agency publishes in the North Carolina Register a notice of text of a proposed rule, it must mail a copy of the notice or text to each person on the mailing list who has requested notice on the subject matter described in the notice or the rule affected. An agency may charge an annual fee to each person on the agency's mailing list to cover copying and mailing costs."
NOTE: The Department of the Secretary of State does not presently charge an annual fee to be on the rulemaking list.
