The AOPA Committee last met on April 23, 2014, at 2:00 p.m., EDT (1:00 p.m., CDT), at the Fort Harrison State Park, Garrison, Gates Room, 6002 North Post Road, Indianapolis, Indiana. The Committee has not yet scheduled its next meeting.
The Commission's "Administrative Orders and Procedures Act" or "AOPA" Committee acts upon matters arising after the completion of adjudications under IC 4-21.5. Most prominently, the AOPA Committee reviews "objections" filed by a party to the findings of fact, conclusions of law, and nonfinal order of an Administrative Law Judge. Other issues may be considered, including where multiple agencies have authority over a subject, and the modification of final orders. The AOPA Committee also provides guidance to the Division of Hearings concerning its responsibilities under IC 4-21.5 and 312 IAC 3-1.
The AOPA Committee is authorized and governed by amendments to 312 IAC 3-1-12 that became effective in early 2004. The Commission approved INFORMATION BULLETIN #42 to help guide and communicate to the public how the AOPA Committee functions.
