The Arizona Lottery provides the following list of rule-makings intended for the calendar year via our Regulatory Agenda. However, statute does permit the Lottery to undertake a rule-making even if the rule-making is not included on this annual regulatory agenda.
Small Business Regulatory Bill of Rights
Arizona law requires state agencies to create and post a Small Business Bill of Rights on their website that details the rights a person has to ensure fair and open regulation by state agencies including licensing decisions, participation in rule-making, and disclosures that must be provided in writing to a business on initiation of an audit or inspection.
