About the Proposal Process
Call for Proposals Issued
The Board of Game 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.
Proposal Books Distributed
After the deadline for receiving proposals has passed, a proposal book is published which is distributed statewide for comment.
Public Comment Invited
The board accepts written public comment on proposals before each meeting. Comments are accepted online, via fax, and by post until two weeks prior to the relevant meeting. These comments are "on-time" and are distributed to the Board for review prior to the meeting. This opportunity for advance review facilitates the public process.
Depending on the meeting, comments may be accepted after the "on-time" deadline, usually only via fax or in person at the meeting site. These are considered "record copies" and are distributed at the meeting. Applicable comment due dates/submission info for each meeting can be found under the Meeting Information link to the left.
Comments must be no longer than 100 single sided pages, or the equivalent, before the on-time comment deadline; after or at the meeting, 10 single-sided pages or less, unless exceptions are requested by the board.
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 adopting, rejecting, amending, or deferring 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.
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.
Summary of Actions Distributed
Staff prepare a written report summarizing the actions taken by the board. The reports are distributed to advisory committees and posted on the website.
