A new online system is being created to support rulemaking, the process agencies use to implement federal legislation. The new system will allow members of the public to participate in rulemaking far more easily than ever before, realizing the potential of legislation that has been in place since 1946. Online rulemaking may lead to a process that is more inclusive in scope and more open to public discussion.
