Agency Regulations

Many federal regulations can be found in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations (Primary KF70.A34 I53x).

State regulations are compiled in the administrative code for each state.

The current regulations promulgated by Minnesota agencies are found in the Minnesota Rules (Primary KFM5434.5 .M56x).

For more information about researching federal agency regulations, see the Federal Administrative Law Research Guide below.
