Federal Register 2.0 Beta Site Launched

The Federal Register is the official daily publication of federal notices, rules and regulations, requests for comment, and presidential documents.

The Office of the Federal Register and the U.S. Government Printing Office are jointly developing an unofficial prototype of an XML-based edition of the Federal Register on a new site, federalregister.gov. The new site provides a more easy-to-read format for Federal Register documents and has web tools and user aids designed to help people find material relevant to their interests.

The beta site was launched on July 26, 2010 to mark the 75th anniversary of the Federal Register Act. Comments and suggestions from the public are welcome.
