Agencies in the United States

As the role of government has expanded, Congress and state legislatures have found it
necessary to delegate power to various government agencies that enables them to create
and enforce rules and regulations in the specific area of government that they are
responsible for (Scheb & Sharma, pages 432-433).

Agencies are also sometimes entrusted with settling disputes between
parties that have a claim that falls under the agency’s designated area. As a result,
agencies often perform quasi-judicial functions (Scheb & Sharma, page 446).

Finding the law: Agencies in the U.S. Code

A collection of general and permanent laws relating to agencies, passed by the United States Congress, are organized by subject matter arrangements in the United States Code (U.S.C.; this label examines agencies topics), to make them easy to use (usually, organized by legal areas into Titles, Chapters and Sections). The platform provides introductory material to the U.S. Code, and cross references to case law. View the U.S. Code’s table of contents here.
