What are rules?
Rules are a special category of law written by state agencies to support, clarify, or implement specific laws enacted by the legislature called statutes. State rules can include building codes, air quality standards, tax codes, public assistance regulations, and public health regulations, to name but a few. They are subordinate to statutes and must work within the framework established by statute. A defining aspect of rules is that they affect people or other agencies outside the agency that writes them.
Rules must be written within the parameters established by statute and cannot be used to expand an agency’s authority. Each rule has to go through a promulgation process designed to provide the public with notice of the rule-making activity and the rule as finally adopted.
