Description

In federal and state governments in the United States, administrative agencies are often given broad delegated powers to affect policy, subject only to the substantive and procedural limits contained in the Constitution and in statutes. In our legal system, the basic function of judicial review of agency action is to keep administrative agencies within the bounds set for them by these legislative and constitutional commands. It is understood that courts have no significant policy-making authority; they should not extend their own function beyond the policing of these constitutional and statutory boundaries.

The Administrative Procedure Act (APA), Chapter 34.05 RCW, contains several types of information about judicial review. It identifies what matters are reviewable, how and where judicial review is obtained, who can seek judicial review, when review can be obtained, and what review consists of once it is secured.
