IDWR Rulemaking 2021/2022

The following table summarizes the IWRB’s and IDWR’s rulemaking activities for the 2021/2022 rulemaking period. Some rules are being presented for authorization and negotiated rulemaking as part of the IWRB’s and IDWR’s plan to review each rule every 5 years consistent with the Governor’s Zero-Based Regulation Executive Order 2020-01. Other rules will be presented in anticipation of Legislature adjournment without passage of a “going home bill” reauthorizing all of Idaho’s administrative laws as required by Idaho Code.
