Promulgation Process / Suggested Changes

The promulgation process is lengthy. This is due, in part, to the Department's desire to develop rules that are clear, reasonable, necessary, fair and enforceable. Serious consideration is given to the recommendations of the Ad Hoc Committee, licensees, child care organizations, interested citizens, parents, and staff.

In the interest of continuing to serve the public by considering its wishes, the Department welcomes any comments or suggestions that you feel will help improve future revisions of these regulations. Your comments will be reviewed when changes in the rules are being considered. 1973 PA 116 requires the Department to conduct a review of the rules every other year and a major review by an Ad Hoc Committee every five years.
