A Manual for the Practitioner

The Minnesota Rulemaking Manual reflects the collective wisdom and experience of the State's rule writing community. First issued on June 17, 1996, it has been revised annually ever since. The editor draws revisions from community members’ suggestions, the previous year’s experience, and recent legislative activity.
