Committee on Delegated County Legislation

Whenever a statutory instrument is submitted to the County Assembly pursuant the Constitution, any law or these Standing Orders, the statutory instrument shall, unless a contrary intention appears in the relevant legislation, be laid before the County Assembly by the Chair of the relevant Sectoral Committee, or any other member and shall thereafter stand referred to the Committee on Delegated County Legislation.

The committee shall consider in respect of any statutory instrument whether it-

1. Is in accord with the provisions of the constitution, the act pursuant to which it is made or other relevant written law;

2. Infringes on fundamental rights and freedoms of the public;

3. Contains a matter which in the opinion of the Committee should more properly be dealt with in an act of the County Assembly;

4. Contains imposition of taxation;

7. Involves expenditure from the County Revenue Fund or other public revenues;

8. Is defective in its drafting or for any reason the form or purport of the Statutory instrument calls for any elucidation;

10.  Appears to have had unjustifiable delay in its publication or laying before County Assembly;

11.  Makes rights, liberties or obligations unduly dependent upon non-reviewable decision;

12.  Makes rights, liberties or obligations unduly dependent insufficiently defined administration powers;

13.  Inappropriately delegates legislative power;
