State administrative codes, which contain the codified versions of state regulations, are available on Bloomberg Law, Lexis, Westlaw, and on many state government websites.
On Bloomberg Law, click on the Legislative & Regulatory tab. From there, simply click on the state map to access regulations.
On Lexis, go to the States Legal - U.S. link to locate individual state pages. Click on " Find Statutes, Regulations, Administrative Materials & Court Rules." The State Administrative Codes & Registers, Combined database is available via the Legislation & Politics - U.S. & U.K link. 50-state surveys are often useful research resources. You may also wish to consult the LexisNexis 50 State Surveys, Legislation & Regulations database.
On Westlaw, you may search the ADC-ACAD database, which contains 42 state administrative codes. You may also search an individual state's code by entering the state's 2 letter postal abbreviation followed by -ADC. For example, the Arkansas administrative code is not included in the ADC-ALL database and must be accessed in the AR-ADC database.
On WestlawNext, simply click on the state materials tab. From an individual state's page, click on the regulations link.
50 State Regulatory Surveys are also available on Westlaw and are found in the REG-SURVEYS database.
