Nonsubstantive Amendments to Regulations

Nonsubstantive amendments to regulations may be made only when the change will not have a regulatory effect. Generally, nonsubstantive amendments are initiated and approved by FPPC staff and do not require the Commission’s review. Nonsubstantive amendments are filed with the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) and effective upon OAL's approval, unless otherwise specified.
