RegInfo.gov
The Regulatory Information Service Center has established the RegInfo.gov site to assist users who want to find information about Federal, State, and local regulation. It contains links to Federal regulatory agendas and regulatory plans, regulatory and information collection reviews by the Office of Management and Budget, legislation, the Federal Register, the Code of Federal Regulations, and state and local regulatory information. It also contains "The Reg Map," a chart that gives an overview of the Federal rulemaking process.
