Office of Administrative Rules

Administrative rules, also commonly referred to as regulations, are laws enacted by state agencies, as specifically authorized by legislation, to implement the statutes created by that legislation. Before becoming effective, rules are subject to a comprehensive rulemaking process that includes review and approval by the Oklahoma Legislature.
