NASS Administrative Rules Organization Elects National Officers

For Immediate Release – July 24, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Administrative Codes and Registers (ACR) Section of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) today announced the election of its new slate of national officers for a two-year cycle. Oklahoma Associate Editor Christopher Coffman will serve as president of the group, which includes administrative rules professionals from the federal government and all fifty states, as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and American Samoa.

“I am honored to be serving an organization composed of talented professionals dedicated to advancing public awareness and access to the regulatory process,” said Coffman, who has served with the Oklahoma Secretary of State’s Office since 2007.  “I look forward to working with our elected officers to further advance the strategic mission of our organization.”

Along with Coffman, ACR members also selected the following national officers:

•           President:  Christopher Coffman, Oklahoma – Associate Editor

•           Vice-President:  Deanna Maiolo, Colorado – Administrative Rules Program Manager

•           Secretary-Treasurer:  Anne Bloomsburg, Virginia – Assistant Registrar of Regulations

The national officers were elected by full member vote at the NASS 2018 Summer Conference held July 13 to July 16 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They will serve a two-year term ending in July 2020.

Formed in 1978, the NASS Administrative Codes and Registers (ACR) Section brings together federal and state government professionals–often employed by Secretary of State offices–who are responsible for reviewing and compiling government rules and regulations. Some members also oversee the production of “blue books,” which are official government directories and fact books for the states.

ACR members are committed to fostering the development of better rule-writing skills and rule review techniques and developing more effective management of the rule promulgation process, particularly in the publication of administrative codes and registers. They are also focused on increasing public access to the rulemaking process.

ACR also produces the State and Federal Survey, a biannual survey of codes and registers, comprehensively documenting the operations of state and federal administrative rules “gatekeepers,” publishers and reviewers.

NASS Administrative Rules Organization Honors Rhode Island Code of Regulations as 2018 Robert J. Colborn, Jr. Innovation Award Winner

For Immediate Release
July 23, 2018

Washington, D.C. —  The Administrative Codes and Registers (ACR) Section of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) awarded the Rhode Island Code of Regulations with the 2018 Robert J. Colburn, Jr. Innovation Award at the association’s annual conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Rhode Island Code of Regulations (RICR) is a system focused on increasing transparency and encouraging civic engagement in the state’s administrative rulemaking process. The RICR features up-to-the-minute rulemaking data, includes an online public comment module, and displays complete version histories for each rule on one, user-friendly page. The application also allows users to have digital access to supporting documentation and aims to increase accessibility by making rulemaking documents fully searchable and translatable. The RICR also contains a civic education component which endeavors to make the rulemaking process easier for the public to understand. The system was designed to “function more as a conversation, not a monologue.”

“The new Rhode Island Code of Regulations (RICR) is a great example of multiple state agencies and branches of government working efficiently together to create a dynamic, intuitive application in just two years. This innovative collaboration resulted in a comprehensive solution that simplified processes, improved access, and educated the public,” said ACR President Emily Caudill, Kentucky Regulations Compiler. “I am delighted that our members in the Administrative Codes and Registers Section have recognized RICR with the 2018 Colborn Award.”

Administrative Codes and Registers (ACR), a section of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS), created the Robert J. Colborn, Jr. Innovation Award in July 2001 in honor of Robert J. Colborn, Jr., who served as the administrator of the Maryland Division of State Documents from 1974 through 2001 and founded ACR. The Robert J. Colborn, Jr. Innovation Award annually recognizes a program that demonstrates creativity and innovation in providing public access to, or managing, administrative rules. It honors the state agency that has made substantial contributions to the flow of information to the public by improving efficiency and delivery of services to citizens, businesses, and other governmental entities.

“As Secretaries of State, we often play the critical role of maintaining government records and ensuring that important information about government is available to our citizens in useful and meaningful ways. The RICR is not simply a website that displays regulations online. It is a portal through which the government and its citizens can communicate about the issues that affect them to make government more transparent, accessible, and efficient,” said Secretary of State Nellie M. Gorbea, who accepted the award.

2018 ACR Robert J. Colborn Jr. Committee:

Chair: Anne Bloomsburg, Assistant Registrar, Virginia Division of Legislative Services

Member: Deanna Maiolo, Administrative Rules Program Manager, Colorado Secretary of State’s Office

Member: Emily Ewart, Rule Specialist and Policy Analyst, Montana DEQ Waste and Underground Tank Management Bureau
Recent Colborn Award Recipients:

2017 – Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office for the Wyoming Administrative Rules System

2016 – Connecticut eRegulations System

2015 – Iowa’s Public Comment Website for Administrative Rules

2014 – Colorado’s Administrative Rules Program, for Implementation of the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act

2017 Winter Meeting

Message from the President – January 11, 2017

ATTENTION ACR MEMBERS:

Due to low attendance (we only have three people who have signed up), we are cancelling the ACR section of the Winter Conference. I have heard from a lot of states that they either received new Secretaries of State this last election cycle or have travel restrictions due to legislative sessions.

***** PLEASE NOTE: If you reserved a room at the JW Marriott, please let me know BEFORE you cancel. NASS has a waiting list and is looking to transfer rooms.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Indianapolis for the Summer Conference, July 7 – 10!   We still have two openings on the Website/Social Media Committee, one on the Program Committee, and one on the Archives Committee. Let me know if you are interested!

Hope to hear from you soon,

Emily
