Department of Cannabis Control files readoption of emergency regulations for equity fee waivers
California Cannabis Industry Association (CCIA)
The Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) has filed an action with the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) to readopt its emergency regulations, with amendments, implementing Senate Bill 166. The bill requires DCC to develop and implement a program to provide waivers for cannabis licensing fees, with at least 60 percent of the total amount of fee waivers allocated to fee waivers for local equity applicants and licenses. This readoption would allow emergency regulations to remain in place while DCC continues working to begin the process of permanently adopting the regulations through the regular rulemaking action.
The DCC’s filing marks the start of the five-calendar day public comment period and the 10-day OAL review period.
