Administrative Law in California

General Information

As a general rule, regulations are different from statutes: regulations are enacted by administrative agencies, while statutes are enacted by the legislature (or by voter initiative). The authority to adopt, amend, and repeal regulations is granted to an agency by either constitutional provision or statute. When exercising this authority, agencies must follow the procedures set forth in the California Administrative Procedure Act. This entry outlines how to locate and update California regulations.

Some agencies have established administrative tribunals that adjudicate certain disputes.This entry will help you locate those agency decisions.

Administrative law is the body of law that governs the activities of administrative agencies of government. Government agency action can include rulemaking, adjudication, or the enforcement of a specific regulatory agenda. Administrative law is considered a branch of public law. As a body of law, administrative law deals with the decision-making of administrative units of government (for example, tribunals, boards or commissions) that are part of a national regulatory scheme

Finding Regulations:

Regulation citations include a title number, publication name, and section.

Examples:
Title 3, California Code of Regulations, section 432
Cal. Code Regs., tit. 3, §432
3 C.C.R. §432

If you have a citation to a regulation, it is easy to find the appropriate title and locate the section. Regulatory materials are compiled in the California Code of Regulations (CCR). The CCR is divided into the following 28 titles, which are subdivided into divisions, parts, and sections:

No.
Title
No. Title
1 General Provisions 15 Crime Prevention and Corrections
2 Administration 16 Professional and Vocational Regulations
3 Food and Agriculture 17 Public Health
4 Business Regulations 18 Public Revenues
5 Education 19 Public Safety
6 Governor [no regulations] 20 Public Utilities and Energy
7 Harbors and Navigation 21 Public Works
8 Industrial Relations 22 Social Security
9 Rehabilitative and Developmental Services 23 Waters
10 Investment 24 Building Codes
11 Law 25 Housing and Community Development
12 Military and Veterans Affairs 26 Toxics
13 Motor Vehicle 27 Environmental Protection
14 Natural Resources 28 Managed Health Care

Barclay’s Official Code of California Regulations

The current CCR is located in the 4th Floor Stacks. The Building Codes in volume 24 are published separately and are kept at the Reference Desk(KFC35.A22). A few regulations are not included in the CCR. For example, the print version of a few provisions in Title 10, Article 7 (such as sections 2350 et seq.) must be obtained from the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau.

Barclay’s publishes a Master Index to the current CCR. It is the last two volumes in the set. One volume contains statute to regulation tables; the second volume contains a subject index. The subject index is the place to look if you do not have a citation to a regulation.

The current CCR may be found online at http://www.calregs.com . Title 6 (Governor) and title 24 (Building Codes) are not included on this web site. This web site. also allows you to find regulations by looking up the relevant administrative agency (e.g. Department of Consumer Affairs) or by searching specific section numbers. This searchable database is updated weekly, and includes helpful instructions. Title 24 is divided into parts, and part 1 (Building Standards Administrative Code), part 7 (Elevator Safety Construction Code), part 8 (Historical Building Code), and part 12 (Reference Standards Code) are available online in PDF format at http://www.bsc.ca.gov/title_24/t24_2001tried.html.

The CCR (titles 6 and 24 are not included) is also available on Lexis and Westlaw:
Lexis: Search in CAL; CAADMN (Barclay’s Official California Code of Regulations)
Westlaw: Use the CA-ADC database (Barclay’s Official California Code of Regulations)

The Internet version of the CCR and the versions on Westlaw and Lexis are all searchable full text.

Updating Regulations and Finding Proposed Changes to Regulations:

The California Regulatory Code Supplement (Digest of New Regulations)
Micrographics – Cabinets 17-18 [1945-current]
This contains the official register of changes to the CCR. The weekly updates include the full text of all the regulations filed during that week with the Secretary of State, as well as a list of the CCR sections affected by the newly published regulation. Just to confuse the issue, this publication is sometimes called the Register.

The California Regulatory Notice Register (Z Register)

This additional weekly publication is published by the State Office of Administrative Law. It includes all proposed regulatory changes within state agencies, as well as disapproval decisions, regulations filed with the Secretary of State, title and section changes to the CCR filed with the Secretary of State, and agency contact information. There is no index, so you will need to look at the table of contents for each issue to check for proposed changes.

You can also check the Rulemaking Calendar, published each year in the Z Register. Every board and department lists proposed regulations, the subject of the proposed regulation, the CCR title and sections affected, the statutes being implemented, contact names and telephone numbers, and projected dates for notices, hearings, and adoption. The current year of the Z Register is kept in a white binder after the last bound volume.

The Z Register began publication in 1974, and information from the 1974-1978 registers is available at the California State Library.

The California Regulatory Notice Register (Z Register) is also available on the Internet at http://www.oal.ca.gov/reg_notice.htm . The site has full text registers from January 1, 2001 to current.

Finding Administrative Decisions and Opinions of the Attorney General: Administrative Decisions

State agencies conduct quasi-judicial hearings. For an overview of this process, see California Administrative Hearing Practice. The State Administrative Manual (SAM) is a reference source for statewide policies, procedures, regulations and information. The manual is available on the Internet at http://sam.dgs.ca.gov/default.htm

Administrative decisions include the following:

  • California Worker’s Compensation Reporter:[1973-current]
  • Fair Political Practices Commission: Opinions: [1975-current]
  • Fair Employment and Housing Commission: Precedential Decisions [1978-current]
  • Industrial Accident Commission: California Compensation Cases. Includes all decisions of the Supreme and Appellate courts in cases originating from the Industrial Accident Commission. [1936-current] [Continues the cases of the Industrial Accident Board, 1911-1935]
  • Office of Administrative Law Determinations: Determinations [1987- current].Contains OAL determinations as to whether a particular agency rule is in fact a regulation that should have been, but was not, adopted in compliance with the procedural requirements of the APA.
  • Public Employment Relations Board: Decisions [1976current]
  • Public Utilities Commission: Decisions of the Public Utilities Commission of the State of California [1948 – current] [Continues the decisions of the Railroad Commission 1911-1947]

  • State Water Resources Control Board. Division of Water Rights: Division Decisions [1999-current]
  • Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board: Precedent Decisions: Benefit, Ruling, Tax, and Disability [1968 – current]

Many agencies also publish their decisions on the Internet. You may want to check the list of agencies at http://www.ca.gov/About/Government/agencyindex.html to see if an agency has recently started posting its decisions on their web site. The following agencies currently have their decisions available online:

Also:

Online Databases: Check the California administrative materials libraries in Lexis (under California Administrative Files) and in Westlaw (under California Administrative Law) for the names of the individual databases and dates of coverage for administrative appeals board rulings and decisions.

Not all agencies publish their decisions. For a listing of agencies which do publish their decisions, seeMartin, Henke’s California Law Guide, 5th edition, p. 221-28.
KFC 74.H46 1995 Reference Desk.

Opinions of the California Attorney General:

  • The Opinions of the California Attorney General (Department of Justice) from 1943 – current are available in some libraries.
  • Lexis has the Attorney General’s opinions from January 1977-current in its platform (formerly STATE;CAAG database).
  • Westlaw has the Attorney General’s opinions from January 1977-current in its platform (formerly CA-AG database).
  • The Attorney General’s office has posted full text Opinions of the California Attorney General from 1986-current.
  • Attorney General opinions from 1852-1942 were not published officially, but are available on microfilm.

Finding Superseded Regulations and Regulatory History:

The California Code of Regulations and Barclay’s Official California Code of Regulations may be used to find changes made 1977-current.

One way to find changes is to check the History note at the end of the section. Note the year and register number (e.g. 1992 reg 24). If the note is not at then end of the section, try the end of the preceding section, the end of the first section in the article, or the end of the first section in the title. You can use the history note to find out the effective date of the regulation, and to get references to earlier versions of the regulation. You can then look up these references in the appropriate year of the CCR. Sometimes this works perfectly. However, not all regulatory changes make it into the notes. If you can’t find the earlier references this way, try the next hint.

Hint: Use the effective date(s) of your regulation to review the entries in the appropriate Regulatory Code Supplement. Use the references to the sections affected to locate the previous citation for your regulation, and then look at the official version of the regulation in the appropriate year of the CCR. Work backwards in the Regulatory Code Supplement for each earlier incarnation of the regulation.

There is also a handwritten guide to the register of all the changes made to each title, by agency, from 1945 to 1990. Legislative Research, Inc. has made these handwritten cards available online at its website (lrihistory.com). The only searchable text is the title information (search = Title 13). Then review the card entries. The entries do not list individual regulations, so you will have to search each register to see if your regulation was affected. However, you can cross-reference the card entries with the list of changes you have found with your previous search.

California Codes of Regulations (and its predecessor, the California Administrative Code) from previous years may be found in Micrographics, KFC35 .A2 1945- current. (Cabinets 17-18).

The California Regulatory Code Supplement (Digest of New Regulations)
(previously called the California Administrative Code Supplement)

The binder contains the official register of changes to the administrative code. The weekly updates include the full text of all regulations filed during that week with the Secretary of State, as well as a list of the sections affected by the newly published regulation. Just to confuse the issue, this publication is sometimes officially referred to as the Register.

The UMI Comprehensive Index (Comprehensive Index, California Code of Regulations) may be useful for finding the changes to a particular section from 1981 to 1999 (ceased).

The California Regulatory Notice Register (Z Register)
This additional weekly publication is published by the State Office of Administrative Law. It includes all proposed regulatory changes within state agencies, as well as disapproval decisions, regulations filed with the Secretary of State, CCR Changes with the Secretary of State (title and section changes), and agency contact information. There is no index, so you will need to scan the table of contents in each issue to check for proposed changes. The current year’s publications are kept in a white binder at the end of the bound volumes.

Barclay’s Law Monthly  [1990-1996, ceased]
Changes enacted between 1990-1996 are arranged by broad subjects. Listings of related court cases and affected California Code sections are also included.

Review policy briefs and agency reports: the California Research Bureau (1991-current) is part of the California State Library; it provides nonpartisan research as requested and its published reports are available online. The Legislative Analyst’s Office has a searchable bank of policy reports. TheLegislative Counsel’s Agency Reports provide information about reports by various state and local agencies.

Call the Agency: The Public Records Act (Government Code § 6250 et seq.) sets out procedures for public access to rulemaking files. You can consult the agency or its legal department and request rulemaking files.

Using Other Sources:

San Francisco Public Library (100 Larkin Street) http://sfpl.org/ Holdings include the CCR from 1990 – current and the Z Register from 1988 – current. The Public Library is an official state depository, so they hold many published agency decisions.

Initiative in California

Legislative Meaning of Initiative

A method of legislating that requires a vote of the people instead of a vote of the Legislature for a measure to become law. To qualify for a statewide ballot, statutory initiatives must receive signatures equal to 5 percent, and constitutional amendment initiatives must receive signatures equal to 8 percent, of the voters for all candidates for Governor at the last gubernatorial election. See more about California legislative definitions (including Initiative ).

Definition of Initiative in the Election Process

Often called “direct democracy”, the initiative is the power of the people to place measures on the ballot. These measures can include proposals to create or change statutes, amendments to the Constitution or general obligation bonds. In order for an initiative that sets or changes state law to qualify to appear on the ballot, petitions must be turned in that have signatures of registered voters equal in number to 5% of the votes cast for all candidates for Governor in the last election. An initiative amending the State Constitution requires signatures equaling 8% of the gubernatorial vote. Again, the statewide vote to enact an initiative only requires a simple majority vote.
