Decisions Pending and Opportunities for Public Participation

The Government Modernization, Efficiency, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2005 (Figueroa, Chapter 686, Statutes of 2005) requires that State agencies post information on their websites about public meetings, proposed regulations, and how to comment or otherwise participate.

The Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) seeks comments on all proposed regulations, in keeping with California's commitment to provide meaningful involvement in government decisions.

DOR Regulations

Information on proposed changes to DOR Title 9, Division 3, California Code of Regulations. Notice of public meetings and any agendas for those meetings will be posted on the DOR Calendar of Meetings and Events page. Submit Your Comments on Draft Regulations via email to legal@dor.ca.gov.
