Once the rulemaking agency receives approval of the rule’s legality from the OAH and approval of the rule’s form from the revisor of statutes, the notice of adoption may be published in the State Register[1] and becomes effective five working days after this publication, unless otherwise specified by law or in the rule.[2]


[1] Interestingly, the agency need not publish the notice of adoption within any time period. See Minn. Stat. §§ 14.26-.27 (2014). Contra Minn. Stat. § 14.19 (2014) (relating to 180-day publication deadline for adoption, amendment, suspension, or repeal of rules adopted after a public hearing).
