Administrative agencies are established by Section 1 of Article 1 of the Federal Constitution. These agencies’ rules and regulations can be implemented as legislation. The purpose of agencies is to defend the public interest. Not all government entities are classified as “agencies.” Boards, commissions, departments, and divisions are other names for them.
The Administrative Procedure Act of 1946 establishes a framework for administrative agencies in terms of their legislative power. These organisations have its own set of rules and regulations. Apart from judicial decisions, laws and legal decisions issued by federal and state government agencies are also binding in the United States.
At the federal level, the Congress and the President create administrative agencies and delegate authorities and control to them. An executive agency is formed by the President, while an independent agency is constituted by Congress. The Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and other administrative agencies under the President’s authority are only a few examples. The Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, and other independent administrative agencies are examples. State administrative agencies, like federal administrative agencies, are modelled after federal administrative agencies and are responsible for issues peculiar to the state, such as education, public health, transportation, labour legislation, and so on. These agencies, unlike federal administrative agencies, are not allowed to make rules and regulations that contradict the laws enacted by their federal equivalents.
