BILL SUMMARIES

COMMITTEE

HB 1546 -- ADMINISTRATIVE HEARING COMMISSION

SPONSOR:  Smith

COMMITTEE ACTION:  Voted "do pass" by the Committee on Civil and
Administrative Law by a vote of 16 to 0.

This bill requires the Department of Social Services to provide
notice of the right to appeal to the Administrative Hearing
Commission in decisions regarding certain contested cases.  The
bill also repeals several provisions of law relating to the
Administrative Hearing Commission's jurisdiction on cases
challenging the validity of administrative rules.  These
provisions were ruled unconstitutional in 1982.

FISCAL NOTE:  No impact on state funds.

PROPONENTS:  Supporters say that people who are adversely
affected by a decision by the Department of Social Services are
often without legal counsel and would not be aware of their
right to appeal the decision to the Administrative Hearing
Commission.  Therefore, some kind of notice explaining that
right is necessary.

Testifying for the bill were Representative Smith; and Sharon
Busch, Administrative Hearing Commissioner.

OPPONENTS:  There was no opposition voiced to the committee.

Richard Smreker, Legislative Analyst
