Broadening Public Engagement in the Federal Regulatory Process

Courtesy of NAA:

Submit input by March 10, 2023! 

Federal regulations detail how laws should be implemented by the government and the public’s input can help ensure rules are effective and accessible for all Americans. The Biden-Harris Administration and the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA)  announced recommendations to broaden public engagement in the federal regulation process and are seeking the public’s comments on those findings by March 10, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. ET.  Please submit written feedback or recorded audio and video submissions to publicparticipation@omb.eop.gov.

There will also be a virtual listening session where members of the public can provide input on Tuesday, March 7 from 3:00-4:30 p.m. ET. Check the Broadening Public Engagement in the Federal Regulatory Process page for registration information when it becomes available.

Resources for providing regulatory input:

The regulatory process works best when the government hears directly from members of the public, including members of underserved communities. OIRA looks forward to hearing from you about how the Federal government can support a more inclusive regulatory process.
