Federal Regulations

"The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is a codification (arrangement of) the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government."

  • "New Deal legislation of the 1930's delegated responsibility from Congress to agencies to regulate complex social and economic issues
  • Citizens needed access to new regulations to know their effect in advance
  • Agencies and Citizens needed a centralized filing and publication system to keep track of rules
  • Courts began to rule on "secret law" as a violation of right to due process under the Constitution"
