Emergency Rules​

Agencies are given the authority through R.S. 49:953(B) to adopt temporary rules in order to create emergency provisions to prevent an imminent peril to the public health, safety, or welfare. These Emergency Rules can be effective upon signature and are filed with the Office of the State Register within five days of adoption. This page provides the reader with the text of the Emergency Rules that will appear in the next printing of the Louisiana Register. The Emergency Rules on this page will be removed when the current Louisiana Register is displayed on-line. As new Emergency Rules are created, they will be posted here.
