Key Information

House Bill 4205 would amend Sections 32 and 45 of the Administrative Procedures Act of 1969, effective January 1, 2018, to: Prohibit a state agency from adopting rules more stringent than an applicable federally-mandated standard unless the director of that agency determines that the preponderance of the evidence establishes a need to exceed the federal standard. In cases where the federal government has not mandated that Michigan promulgate rules, prohibit a state agency from promulgating a more stringent rule than the applicable federal standard unless specifically authorized to do so by state statute, or unless the director of that agency determines that the preponderance of the evidence establishes a need to exceed the federal standard.
