|January 13, 2022||Public Comment Opportunity: Chapter 21, General Hearing Procedures
This is a "repeal and replace" makeover of the chapter in which much of previous language will be repealed because it was derived from, and is redundant to, the Maine Administrative Procedures Act (MAPA). While the MAPA has been amended, Chapter 21 has not kept pace and is now in conflict with MAPA in places. Moreover, there is no legal or practical advantage to repeating statute in rule. In addition to the repeal of MAPA language, some of the more confusing language was clarified.
