About Us

The Department of State’s Administrative Code, Register and Laws Section is the filing point for rules promulgated by state regulatory agencies. Agency rulemaking is governed by Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, the Administrative Procedures Act. Rules are published in the Florida Administrative Code. The program is also responsible for publishing the Florida Administrative Register

The mission of the section is to file, preserve and make available to the public the rules and other public records it receives. To guide State agencies, staff provide training and consultation with respect to the requirements for filing rules and publishing rule, meeting and other notices. Finally, the section, as well as other programs of the Division of Library and Information Services, provide continuing access to materials that are files and have long term value.
