MoDOT Begins Review of Administrative Rules,
Seeks Public 'E-Comments'

JEFFERSON CITY – In accordance with Gov. Eric Greitens’ executive order issued in January, the Missouri Department of Transportation has launched a comprehensive review of the more than 200 administrative rules it administers.

An important element of the review is public input. MoDOT will begin a 60-day “E-Comment” period on April 6. Missourians can review the specific rules and offer comment by visiting www.modot.org/AdminRules   The public comment period will close on June 5. Comments can also be faxed to 573-526-4859, or mailed to MoDOT at P.O. Box 270, Jefferson City, Mo. 65102-0270.

Persons without access to a computer may visit MoDOT’s district offices in St. Joseph, Hannibal, Kansas City, Jefferson City, St. Louis, Springfield and Sikeston, or the general headquarters in Jefferson City. Most public libraries also offer computer access. All MoDOT facilities are accessible to persons with disabilities. MoDOT has been utilizing electronic public meetings since 2008 to maximize public ease and participation in the decision-making process.

Assistant Chief Engineer Kathy Harvey is directing the review with assistance from MoDOT division heads who are responsible for each category of regulations. “Our charge is to identify regulations that are ineffective, unnecessary or unduly burdensome,” she said. “Comments from stakeholders and the public are essential to this effort.”

As called for in the executive order, for each existing regulation, and any proposed regulation, MoDOT is to report to the governor by May 31, 2018, that:

  • The regulation is essential to the health, safety, or welfare of Missouri residents;
  • The costs of the regulation do not outweigh their benefits, based on a cost-benefit analysis;
  • A process and schedule exist to measure the effectiveness of the regulation;
  • Less restrictive alternatives have been considered and found less desirable than the regulation;
  • The regulation is based on sound, reasonably available scientific, technical, economic, and other relevant information; and
  • The regulation does not unduly and adversely affect Missouri citizens or customers of the State, or the competitive environment in Missouri.

    For more information or assistance in submitting a comment, interested persons can call 1-888-ASK-MoDOT (275-6636).
