Federal Register

Primary tabs

The Federal Register is a daily publication of the U.S. Federal Government that officially notifies the public about changes to federal law. Among the items published are presidential executive orders, proposed and enacted administrative rules, notices from administrative agencies, and documents that must be published before taking effect.

Due to the high volume of published information, the Federal Register allows for the sorting of information by key categories like Science & Technology and Health & Public Welfare.
