Maine Revised Statutes

§8074. Federally mandated rules

Major substantive rules that must be adopted to comply with federal law or regulations or to qualify for federal funds and over the adoption of which the agency exercises no option or discretion are not subject to the legislative review requirement of this subchapter unless they impose requirements or conditions that exceed the federal requirements. An agency must file notice of the adoption of major substantive rules that are required by federal law and that do not exceed federal requirements with the Legislature in the same manner as it files notice of proposed rules under section 8053-A. [1995, c. 463, §2 (NEW).]
