DHS policy includes rules that must comply with the Administrative Procedures Act (APA), per Section 250 et seq. of title 75 of the Oklahoma Statutes. In accordance with APA, rules are approved by the DHS Director, Governor and Legislature before they are implemented by DHS. Rules directly affect clients, vendors or the general public.
