On June 13, 2013, the Board held a public hearing on the proposed regulations regarding: 1) State Mediation and Conciliation Service (SMCS) conducted representation and agency shop elections; and 2) MMBA factfinding sufficiency determination appeals. The proposed regulations were previously published in the April 26, 2013 California Regulatory Notice Register. My understanding is that the Board voted to proceed with the regulations as published.
According to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) website, PERB has submitted its “Final Statement of Reasons” for the two regulatory packages and now OAL has 30 days to review the proposed regulations. The OAL review is expected to be completed by August 23, 2013.
