State Rules and Regulations
In 2018, the Department of State launched the Rhode Island Code of Regulations, an online, uniform code of all proposed and final regulations filed by state agencies, boards and commissions under the state's Administrative Procedures Act. It represents a comprehensive effort to make government - and government processes - more transparent, accessible, and efficient.
