What is a stakeholder workgroup?
A stakeholder workgroup is a forum for the Department to gather information from stakeholders for the development of new rules or for the revision of existing rules. Stakeholder workgroups occur in advance of a rulemaking hearing and may or may not incorporate draft rules. The workgroup consists of individuals who have knowledge of the issues being discussed. The workgroup members will be asked to provide their input and insight, along with constructive feedback and suggestions, in an open discussion format.
