DIFP Rule Review Help us improve our regulations We want to hear from you

On January 10, 2017, Governor Greitens issued Executive Order 17-03 ordering each state agency to undertake a review of every regulation under its jurisdiction. Reviews will determine if specific regulations are ineffective, unnecessary, or unduly burdensome by considering whether:

  • The regulation is essential to the health, safety, or welfare of Missouri residents;
  • The regulation’s costs do not outweigh its benefits;
  • The regulation is effective;
  • The regulation is the least restrictive alternative;
  • The regulation is based on sound, reasonably available scientific, technical, economic, or other relevant information; and
  • The regulation does not unduly and adversely affect Missouri citizens or customers, or the competitive environment in Missouri.

Governor Greitens is committed to ensuring a thorough review is conducted by each department and cutting state government red tape. As part of the review process, the department is asking for comments on its existing rules. Please see the categories of rules below for review and comment, and feel free to use the comment form multiple times to submit multiple comments on different rules. These comments will be accepted on an ongoing basis, but our goal is to gather input by October 2, 2017. We welcome your online comments and suggestions.

In addition, the department will hold two public hearings on its rules to allow taxpayers, citizens, businesses and customers of the department to identify rules that are ineffective, unnecessary, or unduly burdensome. Please join us in our effort to improve the department’s regulations. These public hearings will be held:

  • August 10, 2017, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
    Harry S Truman State Office Building
    Room 490/492, 493/494
