Rule Development 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.

The Air Quality Division State Implementation Plan and Rule Development section is responsible for developing federally approvable plans and rules necessary to ensure that the State of Wyoming retains primacy in regulating sources of air pollution as required under the Clean Air Act (CAA).
