not yet rated|write a review
Increasingly, state regulations are implemented and exercised by the administrative discretion of state bureaucracies. To combat this, state legislatures now routinely seek to regain their preeminence as lawmakers by overseeing administrative rulemaking authority. This oversight is frequently conducted through a process known as "rules review." Regulating the Regulators presents an introduction to this legislative oversight of administrative rulemaking. Rules review encourages the responsible exercise of rulemaking authority by requiring legislative scrutiny of proposed regulations prior to final adoption by the issuing agency. Bowers examines this process through an in-depth case-study of the Illinois General Assembly.

Editorial Reviews

"Bowers draws two general conclusions about the utility of rules review: First, '...it clearly provides some degree of oversight of the administrative discretion in rulemaking, ' and second, '...an advisory rules review process can educate state legislators to the importance of revising rulemaking authority in light of administrative experience and ...[make] state agencies responsible to the rule of law rather than the vague expectation of informal politcs.' This is a far cry from reasserting legislative control of runaway rulemaking. Regulating the Regulators is not light reading, but it is clearly written and a perceptive look into the Illinois General Assembly's wrestling with the problem of administrative discretion and the creation of it own bureaucracy."-Illinois Issues
