EPA’s model for rulemaking in the digital age

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Rulemaking Gateway, which “provides information to the public on the status of EPA’s priority rulemakings” could be a model for tracking rulemaking, according to an article in NextGov:

  • EPA Web site paving the way to transparency, by Aliya Sternstein, NextGov (02/19/2010).

    EPA has committed to releasing rulemaking plans earlier than in the past. As soon as an agency regulatory policy officer determines it is appropriate to start developing a rule, information will be posted on the gateway, officials said. A regulation could appear on the site months or even years before a file is created on the governmentwide rule-tracking site Regulations.gov.

It has user-friendly searches and is closely tied to Regulations.gov.
