Greetings, fellows, relative noob here. A couple phrases in this fine article struck me as rather "value laden," so I replaced them with plainly-descriptive language: Specifically, “powered the success” and “notable (government) achievements.” One could quibble that the previous terms aren't necessarily normative, and in the context here one could argue that they are (I would). No such argument is likely with the more neutral phrase I inserted instead. Ciao, Adam smith's ghost (talk) 15:02, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Next will finish: Rulemaking process: The typical process An example of the rulemaking process, using some of the common terminology: Legislation. At this stage, the legislature establishes a program to address a particular area, sets the substantive goals, schedule, and scope of regulation, and assigns the rulemaking to a particular agency. Regulatory agenda. Upcoming rulemaking activities are periodically summarized so the public can understand what regulatory processes are coming up. Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. At this optional stage, the agency lays out the rough direction of the regulatory proposal. Often, the ANPR ‘’Notice of Proposed Rulemaking’’ (or simply ‘’Proposed Rule’’) ‘’Response to Comments and Final Rule’’ ’’Effective Date’’ Chrisvls 17:32, 29 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Is there a reason this article is not titled 'United States rulemaking'? It refers almost exclusively to US law and does not link US practices to delegated legislation in other countries. Other US law topics on related areas identify those articles as part of US law, such as United States administrative law.Alan (talk) 03:59, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
