SLC Legislative Staff Exchange
Electronic Filing of Regulations
The SLC arranged for legislative staff from the Arkansas Bureau of Legislative Research (BLR) to travel to Richmond, Virginia, to learn more about the state’s Regulation Information System (RIS), a web-enabled application to file regulations and rules with the Registrar of Regulations for publication in the Virginia Register of Regulations. Arkansas House Bill 1429 (2019) requires BLR to compile, format and index the codification of all state agency rules. Staff members from the Division of Legislative Services briefed their Arkansas counterparts on the development and main functions of the RIS and also provided a demonstration of the system.
