The contents of the Rules and Regulations of the Safety Fire Commissioner are not printed in the Official Compilation Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia. By Ga. Laws 1967, p. 618 (Ga. Code Ann., Section 3A-124), the General Assembly of Georgia amended the Georgia Administrative Procedure Act (Ga. Laws 1964, p. 338; Ga. Code Ann., Chapter 3A) by the addition of the following provision relating to the filing of Rules and Regulations of the Safety Fire Commissioner.

"As to such regulations, standards and plans as required by law to be filed and kept on file with the Office of the Secretary of State, the Fire Safety Department and the Insurance Department of the Office of the Comptroller General may comply with the filing requirements of this Act by filing with the Office of the Secretary of State merely the name and designation of such regulations, standards and plans, provided such regulations, standards and plans are kept on file in the Office of the Comptroller General by the titles otherwise applicable under this Act, and such regulations, standards and plans are open for public examination and copying.

The Fire Safety Department and the Insurance Department of the Office of Comptroller General may also satisfy the procedure for conduct of hearings on contested cases and rule-making required under this Act by following the provisions of Chapter 2 of the Georgia Insurance Code, Chapter 56-2, Georgia Code, as amended."

On July 20, 1965, the Comptroller General filed with the Secretary of State Original Rules for the Fire Safety Department, but said Rules and Regulations were not in proper form for printing and distribution as a part of the Rules and Regulations of the State of Georgia. Before said Rules and Regulations could be prepared in proper form for printing and distribution, the General Assembly enacted Ga. Laws 1967, p. 618, whereby the Rules and Regulations of the Fire Safety Department are filed with the Secretary of State by name and designation only.

On January 29, 1968, the Comptroller General, as the Georgia Safety Fire Commissioner, filed with the Secretary of State, under Ga. Laws 1967, p. 618 (Ga.

Pursuant to said filing, the Comptroller General provided that as of April 1, 1968, all previous Rules and Regulations of the Georgia Safety Fire Department would be superseded by the Rules and Regulations as filed on January 29, 1968. The Comptroller General stated that all of said Rules, Regulations and Standards are on file in the Office of Comptroller General and are open for public examination and copying.
