Regulations.gov Relaunch Coming Soon
April 16, 2012
Federal officials plan to completely overhaul Regulations.gov during 2012 to make the electronic rule-making website more intuitive for users, according to version 2.0 of the Environmental Protection Agency's open government plan.
The updates also will make it easier for developers to automatically stream proposed rules onto their own websites using application programming interfaces, or APIs, the plan said.
Updates of agencies' open government plans, first released in 2010, were due April 9, but several trickled in during the past week. A few, such as the Veteran Affairs Department's have yet to come out.
