​Office of the State Register

In 1974 the role of the Office of the Secretary of State was deleted from the Louisiana Administrative Procedure Act and the responsibility for receiving newly adopted rules was vested in the Governor's Division of Administration. The Office of the State Register was created, its sole responsibility being to assimilate and edit notices and rules submitted by agencies. Agencies were then directed to file a certified copy of each rule adopted, as well as all rules existing on January 1, 1975, to the Office of the State Register.

This 1974 amendment created a new state publication to be known as the Louisiana Register and designa​ted the Governor as publisher. This periodical was designed to contain the notices and rules submitted by agencies on a monthly basis.

The Office of the State Register was directed to compile, index, and publish the Louisiana Administrative Code containing all effective rules adopted by each agency. The first Louisiana Register was published in January 1975 and was titled Number 1 of Volume 1.
