ABSTRACT - An investigation to determine the significant influence of administrators on the formulation of legislative policy, in the State of Minnesota, during the 1963 Session of the Minnesota Legislature. While it is claimed that not all bills were developed by admnistrators, the hierarchical process of those bills formulated by the bureaucracy ·of slate government deserved special attention. Once personnel developing legislation were identified within each department as being part of the informal process, some selected attitudes of ~dministrators toward their bills and the legislative process were examined through the use of a questionnaire.
