2020 Revision of Regulation 61-34 and 61-34.1

In an effort to ensure our valued stakeholders are able to provide input and are informed about the proposed changes, an additional round of virtual informational meetings will be held on February 12, 2021, with online and phone access, to provide interested persons the ability to participate remotely. During the meetings, Department staff will discuss the proposed changes since the last meeting and encourage additional stakeholder input. These meetings also serve as a time for stakeholders to ask the Department questions about the proposed revisions. Establishing and fostering partnerships with our valued stakeholders is important to us and we value your input.
