Committee Created to Revise the Model State Administrative Procedure Act

July 25, 2004

The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL) has created a committee to discuss revisions to the Model State Administrative Procedures Act (MSAPA). Professor John Gedid, professor of law at Widener University in Harrisburg, PA, has been assigned as the committee reporter (chair).

On July 18, Professor Gedid spoke to the Administrative Codes and Registers (ACR) summer conference in New Orleans. He indicated that one of the primary efforts of the revision committee is to make a new MSAPA from which states may borrow pieces and parts without having to adopt the entire model act.

The next meeting of the Committee to Revise Model State Administrative Procedures Act, is slated for November 12-14, 2004, in Philadelphia, PA. Call the NCCUSL office at 312-915-0195 for more information.
