• This site contains rules that have been promulgated by the Missouri Department of Social Services. As part of the rule review processes of Executive Order 17-03 and 536.175, RSMo, we invite you to comment on any of our current rules until September 15, 2017. To find a rule, you need to use the filters below. The easiest way is to filter is by division, click the blue "Search" button on the right, and a list of all of the division's rules will appear. After you find a rule you are interested in commenting on, just hit the "Submit Comment" button that is below the Rule Number. Please note that the official text of a rule is under "Final Decision" and you can click on "Code of State Regulations" to be brought to the Secretary of State's website.

    In the future, we will be putting up proposed rules that will not go into effect until the public has had an opportunity to submit written comments, and to attend a public hearing if one is scheduled. Any person may offer comments on a Proposed Rule.

    We hope you find this site helpful and informative.
