Rulemaking Process

Rule development involves a process that allows for input from the public and other stakeholders. After a Proposed Rule is developed internally by DEQ/AQD, it must undergo review by both the Wyoming Air Quality Advisory Board and the Environmental Quality Council – the public is given an opportunity to comment on the Proposed Rule prior to each stage – before it can become a State Rule. The Proposed Rule is also reviewed by the Attorney General, Legislative Services Office, and the Governor’s Office before it reaches the Secretary of State’s Office and becomes a State Rule.
