Assignment Question # 3 (1 Page)
The Paperwork Reduction Acts notwithstanding, the amount of paperwork that federal agencies thrust on the
American public keeps growing. Federal income tax forms are one of the most time-consuming and intrusive
paperwork requirements that most Americans fill out. Can you recommend ways of simplifying the form you
use? If so, what are they? Do they involve rewriting tax law?


Discussion Question (2-3 Paragraphs)
A statute in State X creates the Board of State Parks. Among other things, the law empowers the Board to issue
permits for concession stands for sale of soft drinks and snacks to visitors to the state parks. Five years ago the
Board issued a permit to Trey’s Oasis to operate a concession stand in Johnakka State Park in accordance with
the park rules and regulations. The handbook of rules and regulations for the park at that time stated that only
one concession stand would be permitted in the park. Last year Trey K. Rattee, operator of Trey’s Oasis, spent
$10,000 to provide a covered area with comfortable chairs for park visitors who stop by for refreshments. Now
Mr. Rattee has learned that the Board intends to issue a permit for another refreshment stand to operate in the
park. Believing the competition will have a serious economic impact on his business, Rattee has hired a lawyer
to challenge the proposed issuance of the new permit as being in violation of the stated rules of the park. The
Board has responded that the rules and regulations for the park that are incorporated into the handbook were not
adopted pursuant to notice-and-comment and therefore are not legally binding “regulations.”
Discuss how you think a court would rule on this controversy. What reasons should the court advance for its
ruling?
