Department of State--Alteration of Local Election Districts; Regulation No. 16-42 (#2716)
On August 14, 2008, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (Commission) received this proposed regulation from the Department of State (Department). This rulemaking amends 4 Pa. Code Chapter 191. The proposed regulation was published in the August 23, 2008, Pennsylvania Bulletin with a 30-day public comment period. The final-form regulation was submitted to the Commission on April 2, 2009.
This regulation adds provisions to establish efficient reporting of changes to local election districts by each county board of elections and for the reporting of election data for the local election districts within each county.
We have determined this regulation is consistent with the statutory authority of the Department (25 P. S. § 2750) and the intention of the General Assembly. Having considered all of the other criteria of the Regula-tory Review Act, we find promulgation of this regulation is in the public interest.
By Order of the Commission:
This regulation is approved.
