Maine Administrative Procedure Act, 5 MRS §§8001-11008
Last updated: December 2019

Introduction

"In response to a decades-long concern about regulatory activity, the federal government and many other states have adopted administrative procedure acts. The intent has been to improve public access to agency decision-making and to increase awareness of agency rules…[the Maine Administrative Procedure Act] applies uniform requirements to state agencies with rulemaking power, and sets minimum standards for agencies to follow in adopting and implementing rules” (see the Maine Secretary of State’s website State Rulemaking - Administrative Procedure Act).

Maine enacted its Administrative Procedure Act, otherwise known as the APA, in 1977. It replaced the state’s administrative code, which can be traced back to 1961. This chart includes all session laws affecting 5 MRS §§8001-11008 and former statutes governing regulatory procedure, 5 MRS §§2301-2452 (Repealed) and RS 1954, Ch. 20-A (Repealed).
