Regulatory

Regulatory involvement is the oversight of state government agencies that affect public policy issues. For example, health care providers would be interested in the actions of the Department of Health and Hospitals, the Office of the Governor, the Office of Workers’ Compensation, the Patients’ Compensation Fund, and the Office of Public Health. Each one of these entities places a role in the rules and regulations of the health care industry. You want to be at the table when the rules of the game are being made, and Checkmate Strategies will make you a player.

Each month the state publishes an official register of proposed rules and public hearings. As your public relations consultant, I will monitor the official state register and alert your organization about any proposed or emergency administrative rules which affect your area of industry. I will also assist in developing testimony on proposed administrative rules and may present such testimony at public hearings.
