What Are Rules?

An administrative rule is a general statement adopted by an agency or board to make the law it enforces or administers more specific or to govern the agency's organization or procedure.

An agency or board may adopt a rule only after the legislature has enacted a law granting this authority to the agency. An agency rule adopted under the rulemaking provisions of Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 14, has the force and effect of law. Rulemaking in Minnesota: A Guide explains each step of the rulemaking process in Minnesota.

Administrative rulemaking follows a very specific and transparent process, which the Rulemaking Progress Chart outlines.
