ACUS has released its newest Information Interchange Bulletin: Notice & Comment Rulemaking.
The Bulletin provides a high-level overview of the Administrative Procedure Act’s notice-and-comment rulemaking process. It describes the steps agencies take to issue rules, from proposal to public engagement to publication.
For more detailed information about notice-and-comment rulemaking, check out the Federal Administrative Procedure Sourcebook—a continuously updated online compilation of the key legal sources governing nearly every aspect of administrative procedure. The Sourcebook is a joint publication of ACUS and the American Bar Association’s Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice.
ACUS’s Office of the Chairman releases new Information Interchange Bulletins on an ongoing basis. Recent Bulletins have covered the Equal Access to Justice Act, National Environmental Policy Act, agency appellate systems, and recordkeeping in informal rulemaking.
All past and future Bulletins are available on our dedicated Information Interchange Bulletins webpage.
