The Legislature relies on departments to promulgate regulations to implement laws. The Department of Public Health is slow to promulgate such regulations and consequently, state laws are not being enforced or applied consistently across the state. We recommend the department report at budget hearings on the status of the development and promulgation of unissued regulations.
