This publication replaces the 1991 cumulative edition of and subsequent supplements to the Hawaii Administrative Rules Directory. Items listed in this publication include repealed sections and the headings of new sections and sections where the headings have changed. Sections that have been amended substantively are not listed if their headings were not changed.
Section 91-5, Hawaii Revised Statutes, required state agencies to publish their rules by June 21, 1981, in the format for administrative rules prescribed by the revisor of statutes. The purpose of the legislation which enacted this requirement was to replace the multiplicity of agency rule formats with a single uniform format for all state agency rules. Not all agencies have fully complied with this requirement. Other agency rules are completely exempt from the Hawaii Administrative Procedure Act (chapter 91, HRS). Accordingly, this directory lists only those rules filed with the lieutenant governor in the Hawaii Administrative Rules format before May 1, 1995.
II. Numbering System
The Hawaii Administrative Rules format prescribed by the revisor of statutes is substantially similar to the format used in the Hawaii Revised Statutes. Among other things, the format brings all agency rules adopted pursuant to the Hawaii Administrative Procedure Act into a single numbering system. The numbering system consists of a series of titles, with each title divided into chapters, and each chapter divided into sections. A title includes all of the rules of a particular department, and all other agencies attached to that department for administrative purposes.
III. Hawaii Administrative Rules Directory
The purpose of this administrative rules directory is to serve as a functional equivalent of a detailed table of contents. The directory is organized as follows:
Users must keep in mind that each title contains all of the rules of a particular department as well as the administrative agencies assigned by law to that department for administrative purposes. To assist users in finding the location of rules of particular agencies, a listing of specific agencies and the title in which their rules are located is included at the end of this introduction.
A person viewing a copy of the actual rules will find three informational notes listed at the end of each section. The source note (material in brackets) gives historical information concerning that particular section. Abbreviations include "Eff" (date section originally became effective), "am" (date section was amended), "ren" (renumbered), "comp" (compiled--merging in amendments and other changes to notes without modifying text of section), and "R" (repealed). Citations of authority (material in parentheses beginning with "Auth:") indicate the state statutes, federal statutes, or federal rules which the adopting agency claims authorized the adoption of that particular section. The list of sections implemented (material in parentheses beginning with "Imp:") indicate the state statutes, federal statutes, federal rules, or other laws which the adopting agency claims the particular section to be implementing or interpreting.
Questions concerning the directory may be addressed to Ken Takayama, Legislative Reference Bureau, State Capitol, 6th Floor, Capitol Center, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, phone 587-0666.
IV. Table of Statutory Sections Implemented
The table of statutory sections implemented provides a means of finding whether rules exist which implement or interpret sections of the state statutes. The table is published as a separate publication.
Rules may be cited as follows:
(Section number), Hawaii Administrative Rules (agency name)
For example:16-30-10, Hawaii Administrative Rules (Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs)
Chapter (title and chapter number), Hawaii Administrative Rules (agency name)
For example:Chapter 16-30, Hawaii Administrative Rules (Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs)
VI. Copies of Rules
The difference between a uniform format for rules and a codification (such as the Code of Federal Regulations) is that only in codifications is there central control over publication. Under the uniform format system adopted by the legislature, each agency retains almost complete control over its own rulemaking proceedings. While a collection of a number of state agency rules published in the uniform format might take on the appearance of a code, no such code exists. Accordingly, copies of agency rules must be obtained from the respective agencies. Persons seeking to establish collections of rules are advised to specifically request copies of rules in the "official" format (i.e., on 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper, an exact replica of rules as filed with lieutenant governor). Agencies have been authorized to issue "unofficial" versions of rules which may differ from copies on file with the lieutenant governor in size of paper used, typesetting, the inclusion of relevant statutes or other materials, or any number of other modifications (although the actual text of the rules should not be modified in any way). All copies of rules distributed in other than the official format should be clearly marked "unofficial."
