The Department of Economic Security (“Department”) is in the process of creating 6 A.A.C. 6 Article 14 to contain administrative rules that govern the use of electronic monitoring devices in group homes, nursing-supported group homes, and intermediate care facilities. The Department originally published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) for these rules in the Arizona Administrative Register on April 22, 2022. As a result of comments we received about the NPR and new laws passed during this year’s legislative session, the Department has engaged in supplemental rulemaking to revise the published draft rules. During this revision process we welcome input from the public. To that end, we are requesting written comments on the current draft of these rules.
The Department is seeking informal stakeholder input as we draft these rules to ensure that we adequately consider stakeholders’ comments and concerns early in the rule writing process. Although there will be an opportunity for formal public comment after the rules are published in the Arizona Administrative Register pursuant to A.R.S. § 41-1023, the Department will not be able to make any substantial changes to the draft rules at that time without adding several more steps and requirements to the rulemaking process.
