Administrative codes are the subject organization of regulations. A register is usually a chronological publication and includes notices and proposed regulations as well as final regulations.
Agency decisions, orders, and opinions are much more difficult to find than statutes, cases, or regulations. Generally, check UCLID, the agency’s website, Lexis & Westlaw, and other commercial publishing sources such as CCH and BNA.
