In 2003, the eRulemaking program launched the Regulations.gov Web site to enable citizens to search, view and comment on regulations issued by the U.S. government.
On average, Federal agencies and departments issue nearly 8,000 regulations per year. In the past, if members of the public were interested in commenting on a regulation, they would have to know the sponsoring agency, when it would be published, review it in a reading room, then struggle through a comment process specific to each agency. Today using Regulations.gov, the public can shape rules and regulations that impact their lives conveniently, from anywhere.
The eRulemaking Program is governed by dozens of Federal organizations participating in a tiered governance structure.
