A.R.S. § 41-1001 defines a substantive policy statement as “a written expression which informs the general public of an agency’s current approach to, or opinion of, the requirements of the federal or state constitution, federal or state statute, administrative rule or regulation, or final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, including, where appropriate, the agency’s current practice, procedure or method of action based upon that approach or opinion.” A.R.S. § 41-1091.01, effective August 2, 2012, requires state agencies to publish substantive policy statements online. The Department of Economic Security currently has substantive policy statements pertaining to the Unemployment Insurance program, the Comprehensive Medical and Dental Program for foster children, and the Division of Developmental Disabilities.
