Division on Civil Rights -
Notice of Proposed Rules

Date of Proposal:
April 18, 2005

Proposal Number:
PRN 2005-134

Proposal Summary:
The proposal would repeal the current rules of Practice and Procedure of the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights, and propose new rules governing this area. The Division conducted a comprehensive review of its Rules of Practice and Procedure and determined that the existing rules were in many cases difficult to follow and somewhat outdated. The proposed new rules would reorganize the existing rules to make them easier to follow and update them to reflect the current practices of the agency. Other changes in the rules are proposed to allow the Division to more efficiently process cases before the agency. Further changes are proposed concerning the processing of housing discrimination cases in order for the Division to achieve certification as a substantially equivalent agency by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, which would permit the Division to enter into a work-sharing agreement with HUD. The proposed repeal and new rules appear in the April 18, 2005 edition of the New Jersey Register.

Summary of Proposal:
A summary of the proposed repeal and new rules is posted on the Division on Civil Rights Web site:

Public Comment:
Public comment on these proposed rules will be accepted until June 17, 2005. Please direct all comments to:

Gary LoCassio, Assistant Director
New Jersey Division on Civil Rights
