The procedure of the department of rehabilitation and correction for giving public notice relative to the adoption, amendment or rescission of rules under Chapter 119. of the Revised Code shall be:
(A) The department shall cause a statement of its intention to consider adopting, amending or rescinding a rule, a brief synopsis or a general statement of said proposed rule for adoption, amendment or rescission, a statement of the reason or purpose for adopting, amending or rescinding the rule, and the date, time and place of hearing on the proposed action, to be published in the register of Ohio no less than thirty days prior to the hearing. The department may take additional steps to inform interested persons of the date, time and place of the public hearing and the brief synopsis or general statement regarding the proposal. The provision of such additional notice is not mandatory and the failure to give notice by any means other than as required by Chapter 119. of the Revised Code shall not in any way invalidate any action taken by the department.
(B) The department shall furnish the public notice required under section 119.03 of the Revised Code and as detailed by paragraph (A) of this rule to any person who requests notice in writing and who supplies an addressed, stamped envelope. Such requests shall be responded to promptly, but the department cannot in all cases guarantee notice thirty days prior to the hearing date.
(C) The department shall furnish a legible copy of the text of the proposed rule to be adopted, amended or rescinded and any accompanying rule summary and fiscal analysis to any person upon request.
