50 States (Plus) of Administrative Codes and Registers

Ever find yourself looking for the administrative code or register for another state? The National Association of Secretaries of State, Administrative Codes and Registers section maintains a nice listing. Their “Internet Access to Administrative Rules” page summaries what items (e.g. register, code, manual) are available online. Included in the listing are places such as Guam, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, and so on.

The website also offers tips when looking for these types of documents. Different jurisdictions refer to items by different names. The site discusses the types of publications considered “registers” and clarifies what is a “manual.” “Please note that the link to ‘Home Page’ points to the home page of the agency directly responsible for receiving rule filings, publishing rules, or both. This may be a bureau or an office several layers down in the organization. When that agency does not have a home page, then there may not be a link to the home page, or the link may point to the agency next in line up the organization chart.”
