H.B. 429

regulations and encourages cooperation and discussion between the Legislative and
Executive Branches. According to the Department of Legislative Services Fiscal and
Policy Note, the AELR Committee received only 89 regulations by Executive Branch
agencies in 2003 for emergency approval.

Accordingly, the amended provisions to the Administrative Procedure Act would
unduly undermine the authority of the office of the Governor, particularly relating to
the approval of emergency regulations.

For the above stated reason, I have vetoed House Bill 429.

Very truly yours,
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.

House Bill No. 429

AN ACT concerning

State Government - Administrative Procedure Act - Proposed Regulations

FOR the purpose of providing that a regulation is only effective if all the provisions of
the regulation address a single subject; requiring agencies to submit proposed
regulations to the Department of Legislative Services; prohibiting the Joint
Committee on Administrative, Executive, and Legislative Review from
approving a request for emergency adoption of a proposed regulation during a
certain period unless the Governor makes a certain declaration; requiring the

effectiveness of emergency regulations; requiring the website of the General
Assembly to include certain information about certain emergency regulations
the Committee has received; requiring the Department of Legislative Services to
maintain a list of members of the public who have requested to receive notice of
the Department's receipt of certain emergency regulations; requiring the

specifying the manner in which the Department shall administer the list;
requiring certain promulgating units to provide copies of emergency regulations
