Key Steps in the Proposal Process

  1. Call for Proposals Issued

    Each board operates on a three year cycle, alternating which subjects are under consideration. A "Call for Proposals" is issued, enumerating the subjects for a given meeting, and listing the deadline for receiving proposals.

  2. Proposal Books Distributed

    After the deadline for receiving proposals has passed, a proposal book is published which is distributed statewide for comment.

  3. Public Comment Invited

    The board accepts written public comment on proposals before each meeting. You may comment on the regulation changes, including the potential costs to the private persons of complying with the proposed changes, by submitting written comments limited to no more than 100 single sided or 50 double sided pages to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Boards Support Section, P.O. Box 115526, Juneau, AK 99811-5526, or by fax to (907) 465-6094, so that the comments will be received no later than two weeks prior to the meeting during which the topic will be considered.

    Unless otherwise specifically specified for a particular meeting in a published notice, written comment over 100 single sided or 50 double sided pages in length from any one individual or group relating to proposals at any one meeting will not be accepted. Written comments limited to 10 single sided or 5 double sided pages in length from any one individual or group will also be accepted after the two-week deadline, but will not be inserted in board member workbooks until the beginning of the meeting.

  4. Board Meeting Held

    At the board meetings, the board hears reports from department staff and comments from the public. The board deliberates each proposal and acts by either adopting, rejecting, or amending proposals.

    The board meetings are open to the public during the entire process, with the exception of executive sessions which are rare and held only for issues of pending legislation, personnel, or confidential matters.

  5. Regulation Filed

    Adopted or amended proposals are then written into the proper legal format and submitted to the Department of Law for review and sent to the lieutenant governor for filing before becoming effective.

  6. Summary of Actions Distributed

    Staff prepare a written report summarizing the actions taken by the board to explain the reasons for the board’s actions. The reports are distributed to advisory committees and posted on the website.
