The Pennsylvania Bulletin is the official gazette of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The publication serves several purposes. It is the temporary supplement to the Pennsylvania Code, which is the official codification of rule, regulations and other statutorily authorized documents. The Governor publishes executive orders, proclamations, and the like. The General Assembly publishes recent actions, committee designations and other notices. The Supreme Court and Rules Committees publish proposed and final amendments to their rules. Courts of common pleas publish orders. Executive and independent agencies publish notices in the Pennsylvania Bulletin covering many topics, including meetings, grants and permits. A cumulative subject matter index is published quarterly.
The Pennsylvania Code is the official codification of rules and regulations issued by Commonwealth agencies and other statutorily authorized documents. It is comprised of over 40 titles. The Pennsylvania Bulletin is the temporary supplement to the Pennsylvania Code, printing changes following approval by IRRC, the legislative standing committees and the Attorney General. These changes are then permanently codified by the Pennsylvania Code Reporter, a monthly, loose-leaf supplement. Under the Pennsylvania Code codification system, each regulation is assigned a unique number by title and section. Titles roughly parallel the organization of Commonwealth government.
