Federal Rulemaking Map
The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of the Office of Management and Budget has published a great tool to understanding the Federal Rulemaking Process.
The White House’s Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has published what they call a “Reg Map.” This map helps illustrate how the federal informal rulemaking process happens from start to finish. There are two major avenues for rulemaking at the federal level, informal and formal. By far, informal is used more often than formal. Informal rulemaking is often referred to as “notice and comment rulemaking” since it simply requires that a proposed new regulation/rule be published for public comment before being enacted.
