Alexa rank Positive decrease 61,257[1] (April 2016) is a U.S. Federal government web site that acts as an "Internet portal and document repository"[2] that allows members of the public to participate in the rulemaking processes of some Federal government agencies.

Rulemaking is a process by which government agencies issue regulations implementing statutes passed by a legislative body such as the United States Congress.

The site allows users to make public comments in response to notices of proposed rulemaking issued by participating agencies; such comments become part of the public record and may be displayed on the site.
