Several states do not have an administrative code at all. To find out if a state has an administrative code or not, please see Bluebook Table 1.
We do not have all states administrative codes in print. Those that we do have are no longer renewed; current administrative codes are found online. To find out if our law library collects a state’s administrative code in print or online, please search our law library by subject: Delegated Legislation – [State]
You will find print editions of these codes in the library:
- Michigan SMITH KFM 4235 1979.A26
- California MICRO-10 S587
- New York RETRO KFN5035 1945 .A23x
- Ohio SMITH KFO 35 1994.A23
- Texas RETRO KF124.5.T49x
Here are online sources of administrative codes:
- FindLaw has links to legal resources broken down by state, including state websites of administrative codes.
- Lexis Advance and Westlaw have Administrative Codes linked under the state ("Regulations").
- Bloomberg Law also provides Administrative Codes (Laws & Regulations > State Laws & Regulations > [choose state] > [state] Regulatory & Administrative)
- Lexis-Nexis State Capital carries the full text of state registers.
For additional state Administrative materials, consult these resources:
- The Book of the States (SMITH & REF COLL: JK 2403 .B6) provides a survey of the officers, agencies, functions, practices and statistics in all the states.
- For names and addresses of state administrative personnel see State Yellow Book (SMITH & REF COLL: JK 2403 .S77).
- Guide to State Legislation, Legislative History and Administrative Materials 2008 ed. (SMITH KF1 .F57 2008) gives sources for finding legislative and administrative materials for each state.
- The University of Virginia's government documents department has developed a web site that provides access to agency documents (including decisions) available on the Internet. This includes agency guidance documents, interpretation letters, as well as links to agencies' e-FOIA reading rooms.
