LAW: THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE OKLAHOMA
ADMINISTRATIVE CODE
PHYLLIS E. BERNARD*
I. INTRODUCTION
The first day of January-for most of us-marks the
roisterous beginning of the new calendar year. Typically, this
beginning is attended by a number of resolutions to reform
and improve behavior-resolutions that typically last only
until they prove less comfortable and convenient to follow
than the habits with which we have grown comfortable.
January 1, 1992, marked the extremely quiet beginning not
only of a new year but, potentially, of a new era in adminis-
trative law within the State of Oklahoma.
* Associate Professor of Law, Oklahoma City University School of Law; A.B.,
Bryn Mawr College, 1976; M.A., Columbia University Graduate School of Arts and
Sciences, 1978; J.D., University of Pennsylvania Law School, 1981. The author
serves as a State Commissioner of the Oklahoma Merit Protection Commission. She
also holds an appointment to the National Advisory Committee on Rural Health of
the Office of Rural Health Policy, United States Department of Health and Human
Services. Previously, the author served as a Member of the Provider Reimbursement
Review Board of the United States Department of Health and Human Services from
1986-1989. The views expressed within this article are solely the author's.
I wish to thank my research assistant Lynne F. Saunders, a 1993 graduate of
Oklahoma City University School of Law, for her assistance in compiling the tables
included in this article. I especially thank Dean Robert Henry for his incisive wit
and generosity as a scholar. Most especially, on behalf of everyone who will benefit
from the Oklahoma Administrative Code, I thank the two women who bore most of
the unheralded burden of creating this landmark document: Peggy Coe, Director of
the Office of Administrative Rules, and Rebecca Rhodes, Assistant Attorney General
for the State of Oklahoma.
