Regulation.gov get’s a makeover…what’s different?

Regulations.gov goes live…again. The eRulemaking Program team says this update is the first installment in a series of website developments scheduled for this year.

The substantial redesign aims to effectively relaunch the site to meet the goals in the President’s Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review Executive Order.

John Moses is the Director at EPA’s Collection Strategies Division. He told Chris Dorobek on the DorobekINSIDER program what makes the new site so much more interactive.
