Rules Submission Guidelines
The Arkansas State Library is now accepting digital submissions of agency rules. Digital submissions may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or through Dropbox: State Docs.
In accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, A.C.A. § 25-15-204, agencies must file with the Arkansas State Library a copy of any rule proposed by it, and a financial impact statement for the proposed rule.
In order to maintain a complete record of rules as they are promulgated, the State Library requests that agencies deposit a final copy of the rule with the State Documents Depository at the same time they are submitted to the Secretary of State's Office.
One copy of a completed Financial Impact Statement must be attached to each copy of a rule or regulation submitted.
