Informal Rulemaking

This lesson examines the "informal" rulemaking process. Under the Administrative Procedure Act, this type of rulemaking is also called "notice and comment" rulemaking. In this lesson, we examine the procedural steps that an administrative agency must follow in order to create a valid "informal" rule. This lesson is intended for students who have studied these issues in class and wish to further refine their knowledge.
