(3 credits)
Prerequisite: POLI 501; or consent of instructor and MPA program coordinator
This course examines that body of constitutional and statutory law that regulates how state and federal administrative agencies implement policies enacted by the legislative and executive branches of government. The course examines issues concerning the delegation of legislative power to administrative agencies; agency rulemaking and adjudication; the Administrative Procedure Act; legislative, executive, and judicial review of administrative agency actions; and issues regarding the citizen’s freedom of access to information and records of administrative agencies. A close examination is given to questions and concerns regarding the democratic legitimacy of administrative agencies, theories of regulation and regulatory policy, and how administrative agencies fit into the constitutional system of government in the United States.
