The administrative agencies in the United States have been a part of both state and federal government for more than half a century in some instances, yet some commentators still look upon their powers with trepidation and consider the amount of power granted to the agencies as amounting to a crisis. When viewed as a part of the government and seen as being responsible to the three more traditional branches, i.e., legislative, executive and judicial, the agencies lose their frightening appearance and become recognizable as a legitimate mode of providing for the general good.
