The Congressional Research Service (CRS) has recently issued two reports looking at Federal rulemaking.
- February 11, 2008: RL34354 — Congressional Influences on Rulemaking Through Appropriations Provisions
- February 12, 2008: RL34355 — The Regulatory Flexibility Act: Implementation Issues and Proposed Reforms
The CRS does not make its reports available directly to the public. Open CRS — a “project of the Center for Democracy and Technology, … provides citizens access to CRS Reports that are already in the public domain” at http://opencrs.cdt.org/.
