Administrative Policy Writing
What do state agencies do?
State agencies are charged with implementing or
a law or some provision of the state
They do this mainly by
rules. (Rules are sometimes called regulations.)
Put very simply: The legislature passes an act to regulate
some activity. The act will be very broad in specifying how
the activity is to be regulated.
The act will direct an agency of the state government to
execute the act by adopting and enforcing more specific
rules (and sometimes the act itself).
