The petition shall clearly state the rule, agency practice or substantive policy statement which the person wishes the agency to make or review. Within sixty days after submission of a petition, the agency shall either deny the petition in writing, stating its reasons for denial, initiate rule making proceedings in accordance with this chapter or, if otherwise lawful, make a rule.

B. A person may appeal to the council the agency's final decision within thirty days after the agency gives written notice pursuant to subsection A. The appeal shall be limited to whether an existing agency practice or substantive policy statement constitutes a rule. The council shall place this appeal on the agenda of its next meeting if at least three council members make such a request of the council chairman within two weeks after the filing of the appeal.

C. An agency practice or substantive policy statement appealed to and considered by the council pursuant to this section shall remain in effect while under consideration of the council. If the council ultimately decides the agency practice or statement constitutes a rule, the practice or statement shall be considered void.
