JCARR Breakout Information
This information is taken from the JCARR website.
The primary function of JCARR is to review proposed new, amended, and rescinded rules to ensure the following:
- the rules do not exceed the scope of the rule-making agency's statutory authority;
- the rules do not conflict with a rule of that agency or another rule-making agency;
- the rules do not conflict with the intent of the legislature in enacting the statute under which the rule is proposed; and,
- the rule-making agency has prepared a complete and accurate rule summary and fiscal analysis of the proposed rule, amendment, or rescission (RC 127.18) and if the agency has incorporated a text or other material by reference, the agency has not met the standards stated in ORC sections 121.72, 121.75, or 121.76.
See the Procedures Manual 'Definitions' and 'Review Procedures' sections for clarification of terms and procedures.
JCARR also reviews rules filed pursuant to RC 119.032 known as the Five-year Review. Rules filed pursuant to this section can be filed as No Change filings and are reviewed by JCARR under an additional set of criteria. (See the Five Year Review section in the Procedures Manual for more information.)
