A Statutory Rule which is subject to Confirmatory Procedure is printed, made and laid before the Assembly. It ceases to have effect unless approved by a resolution of the Assembly within a specified period provided for in the parent legislation.
A Statutory Rule which is subject to Affirmative Resolution is printed, made and laid before the Assembly. It shall not come into operation unless affirmed by the Assembly.
