[August 30, 2018] Rhode Island is reorganizing all Executive Branch regulations into a uniform state code. This project is being led by the Office of the Secretary of State and Rhode Island Office of Regulatory Reform. A 2016 update to the state's Administrative Procedures Act (APA) requires every state regulation to be rewritten into the new RI Code of Regulations. The regulations promulgated by OLIS have been reformatted to comply with the APA.
The Library of Rhode Island (LORI) Standards and Regulations, 220-RICR-60-15-03, were approved by the Library Board of Rhode Island and became effective on September 20, 2015.
Regulations Effective Date: September 20, 2015
