MGMT 520- Week 2 Homework
MGMT 520- Week 2 Homework
Pick an administrative agency of either the federal or a state government. Find where the current and proposed regulation changes for that agency are located on the Internet (i.e., the Federal Register or the State Administrative Agency website.) The site regulations.gov is a good place to begin your research. Pick one proposed regulation change currently under consideration (if you find one that has already closed out but interests you, you can use that instead) and answer these questions regarding it.
State the administrative agency that controls the regulation. Briefly explain why this agency and your proposed regulation change interests you. Will this proposed regulation affect you or the business in which you are working? If so, how? (10 points)
Submit a copy of the proposed regulation along with your responses to these five questions. The proposed regulation can be submitted as either a separate Word document (.doc) or Adobe file (.pdf). This means you will submit two attachments to the Week 2 Dropbox: (a) a Word document with the questions and your answers, and (b) a copy of the proposed regulation you used for this assignment.
Describe the proposal or change. (10 points)
Write the public comment that you would submit for this proposal. If the proposed regulation deadline has already passed, write the comment you would have submitted. Explain briefly what you wish to accomplish with your comment. (10 points)
Provide the deadline by which the public comment must be made. (If the date has already passed, please provide when the deadline was). (5 points)
Answer the following questions with regards to your chosen proposal. Answer all of these questions even if you are in favor of this proposed regulation. (15 points)
Once you have submitted your comment, what will you be legally entitled to do later in the promulgation process (if you should choose to do so)? (See the textbooks discussion of the Administrative Procedure Act.)
If the proposal passes, identify and explain the five legal theories you could use in an attempt to have (any) administrative regulation declared invalid and overturned in court.
Which of these challenges would be the best way to challenge the regulation you selected for this assignment if you wanted to have the regulation overturned, and why?
Answer all of these questions under Item 5, regardless of whether you are in favor of your proposed regulation or not.
This homework should be 23 pages long and single spaced (for a total of 50 points). (There is a copy of a sample homework showing the beginning questions answered in Doc Sharing. This will give you some direction on how to complete this assignment; of course, you cant use the regulation listed in this sample.)
