National Archives debuts Federal Register 2.0.
The National Archives Office of the Federal Register (OFR) and the Government Printing Office (GPO) are launching FR 2.0, a redesigned and upgraded site for the Federal Register that gives visitors access to news and tools relating to such government topics as business, the environment, technology, and health. The site is designed to function as a daily newspaper, helping visitors stay up-to-date on the latest developments and news.
FR 2.0 also features improved navigation and search tools as well as social media capabilities and integration with Regulations.gov, an online resource for finding federal regulations from more than 300 different federal agencies. The site also lets users submit comments and track the progress of federal rulemaking through a regulatory history.
FR 2.0 originated in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy as part of open government initiatives. The site is currently available as a prototype to gather public feedback and may be officially approved by 2011.
