Section 121.953 | Total permitted regulatory restrictions.


(A) Effective July 1, 2025, the number of regulatory restrictions in this state shall not exceed a number of regulatory restrictions determined by the joint committee on agency rule review in accordance with this section. The joint committee shall determine that number by calculating, for each agency, the number of regulatory restrictions identified by the agency in the base inventory prepared under section 121.95 of the Revised Code, minus the number of regulatory restrictions that represents the percentage reduction the state agency is required to achieve, and then totaling the resulting numbers for all state agencies. The joint committee shall consider any lessened required reductions under section 121.952 of the Revised Code.

(B) A state agency shall contact the joint committee before submitting a proposed rule containing a regulatory restriction, and the joint committee shall determine whether adopting the regulatory restriction would cause the state to exceed the number of regulatory restrictions permitted under this section. A state agency may not adopt a rule if by adopting the rule the state agency would cause the number of regulatory restrictions to exceed the state limit as determined by the joint committee.
