Section 103.0521 | Removal of obsolete rules.
If a rule currently in effect is obsolete because the rule was adopted by an agency that is no longer in existence and jurisdiction over the rule has not been transferred to another agency, and if that status is verified by the executive director of the joint committee on agency rule review, the executive director shall prepare, for consideration of the joint committee, a motion that the director of the legislative service commission remove the obsolete rule from the Administrative Code. The executive director shall transmit a copy of the motion to the common sense initiative office before the next meeting of the joint committee.
The chairperson of the joint committee responsible for calling and conducting meetings under section 101.35 of the Revised Code, or another member of the joint committee delegated by that chairperson, shall offer the motion at the next meeting of the joint committee. If the motion is agreed to by the joint committee, the executive director shall transmit a copy of the motion to the director of the legislative service commission. The executive director shall certify on the copy transmitted that the motion was agreed to by the joint committee.
Upon receiving the certified motion, the director of the legislative service commission shall remove the obsolete rule from the Administrative Code as directed in the motion. The director thereafter shall maintain the removed obsolete rule in a file of obsolete rules. The file of obsolete rules may be maintained in electronic form.
