Operation Rules Update

Emergency Rulemaking:

During the June 8, 2016 State Board of Education the Board approved the new Colorado Rules for the Operation, Maintenance and Inspection of School Transportation Vehicles 1 CCR 301-26. Due to a technicality, the rulemaking process was not completed and must be started over.  As such, CDE is proposing the State Board of Education conduct emergency rulemaking at a July 7, 2016 meeting.  The proposed emergency rules would be consistent with the action taken at the June State Board of Education rulemaking hearing.  At that time, the State Board voted to repeal two separate rules (1 CCR 301-26 and 1 CCR 301-29) and reenact a single, consolidated set of rules.
