Once OAL posts notice of the proposed emergency rulemaking action on its website, any interested person will have five (5) calendar days to submit related comments to OAL as set forth in Government Code section 11349.6. The five-day comment period does not begin until the notice of filing of the proposed emergency regulations is posted by OAL on its website pursuant to California Code of Regulations, Title 1, section 55. Also, upon submission, OAL will have 10 calendar days within which to review and make a decision on the proposed readoption. The list of emergency regulations under review by OAL website can be viewed here: https://oal.ca.gov/emergency_regulations/emergency_regulations_under_review/

When you submit a comment to OAL, you must also submit a copy of your comment simultaneously to the Department at:
OAL will confirm that the Department has received the comment before considering it.
