Welcome to the State of California 

Decisions Pending & Opportunities for Public Participation

The Government Modernization, Efficiency, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2005 requires each state agency post to its Web site information on Board and Advisory Committee meetings and agendas, information on the Department's proposed regulations, and instructions on how the public may submit written comments or otherwise participate in these administrative proceedings, meetings, and hearings.

The California Department of Public Health welcomes comments on all proposed regulations, in keeping with California’s commitment to provide meaningful involvement in government decisions.
