Laws and Regulations Federal Regulations Regulations are issued by federal agencies, boards, or commissions. They explain how the agency intends to carry out a law. The Rulemaking Process Federal regulations are created through a process known as rulemaking. By law, federal agencies must consult the public when creating, modifying, or deleting rules in the Code of Federal Regulations. Once an agency decides that a regulation needs to be added, changed, or deleted, it typically publishes a proposed rule in the Federal Register to ask the public for comments. After the agency considers public feedback and makes changes where appropriate, it then publishes a final rule in the Federal Register with a specific date for when the rule will become effective and enforceable. When the agency issues a final rule for comment, it must describe and respond to the public comments it received.

The United States is long overdue for a major tax reform bill. Our current tax code is strangling business growth, job creation, and higher wages. The most important tax-related measures we can take to boost economic growth are lowering business tax rates and allowing businesses to recover their investments faster. The INVEST Act would allow new businesses to deduct a substantial part, if not all, of their startup costs within the first year. A second part of my bill focuses on increasing cash flow for small and medium-sized businesses, farms, and ranches – in particular those that operate as corporations and partnerships – by allowing them to use cash accounting instead of accrual accounting.

What are Tort Laws? Tort laws are laws that offer remedies to individuals harmed by the unreasonable actions of others. Tort claims usually involve state law and are based on the legal premise that individuals are liable for the consequences of their conduct if it results in injury to others (McCarthy & Cambron-McCabe, 1992). Tort laws involve civil suits, which are actions brought to protect an individual’s private rights. Intentional Torts Intentional torts are usually offenses committed by a person who attempts or intends to do harm. Teachers accused of assault and battery are typically given considerable leeway by the courts (Alexander & Alexander, 1992). Negligence Torts The second type of tort seen most frequently in education related cases is negligence. Next Section - Previous Section Online Discussion - Back to Author Online Page

THE TWELVE TABLES This is the earliest attempt by the Romans to create a CODE OF LAW; it is also the earliest (surviving) piece of literature coming from the Romans. In the midst of a perennial struggle for legal and social protection and civil rights between the privileged class (patricians) and the common people (plebeians) a commission of ten men (Decemviri) was appointed (ca. 455 B.C.) to draw up a code of law which would be binding on both parties and which the magistrates (the 2 consuls) would have to enforce impartially. The commission produced enough statutes (most of them were already `customary law' anyway) to fill TEN TABLETS, but this attempt seems not to have been entirely satisfactory--especially to the plebeians. A second commission of ten was therefore appointed (450 B.C.) and two additional tablets were drawn up. I.1"If he (plaintiff) summon him (defendant) into court, he shall go.
