The absence of uniformity and co-ordination is perhaps best illustrated by reference to those agencies performing an administrative function without substantial legislative direction, such as the Tax Commission, and those agencies which operate under relatively rigid controls, such as the Department of Employment Security. This lack of uniformity has resulted in confusion of the public and members of the bar practicing before administrative agencies. Because of limited space, this discussion will be restricted to an examination of agencies which are representative of the many varied and separate administrative procedures in the state. Included is an appendix listing additional state agencies, the basis for their procedures and other data.
