Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

1-26-5Notice of proposed emergency rule--Service--Use of emergency rule adoption procedure.

Prior to the adoption or amendment of an emergency rule, an agency shall publish a notice of intent to adopt an emergency rule in the manner prescribed in § 1-26-4.1 and shall serve on the person specified by subdivision 1-26-4(1), each member of the Interim Rules Review Committee, and the director:

(1)    A copy of the proposed rule, which shall bear a special number to distinguish it from a permanent rule;

(2)    Any publication described in § 1-26-6.6 which shall be returned to the agency upon completion of the director's review and retained by the agency; and

(3)    A statement, with the reasons, that the emergency procedure is necessary: because of imminent peril to the public health, safety, or welfare; to prevent substantial unforeseen financial loss to state government; or because of the occurrence of an unforeseen event at a time when the adoption of a rule in response to such event by the emergency procedure is required to secure or protect the best interests of the state or its residents.

Any agency may use the emergency rule adoption procedure. However, no agency may use the emergency rule adoption procedure for the convenience of the agency merely to avoid the consequences for failing to timely promulgate rules.
