Administrative Rules

The Board and Commission are vested with the authority to promulgate administrative rules to carry into effect the duties and powers accrued to them by state law.

Administrative Rules are adopted pursuant to the Alabama Administrative Procedure Act, being published in the Alabama Administrative Monthly for public comment. Public hearings are held to receive comments about proposed rule changes with great import to licensees' practices.
