Recommendations 2023-1, Proactive Disclosure of Agency Legal Materials – identifies statutory reforms that, if enacted by Congress, would provide clear standards as to what legal materials agencies must publish and where agencies must publish those legal materials (whether in the Federal Register, on the agency's website, or elsewhere). The amendments also account for technological developments and correct certain statutory ambiguities and drafting errors. The objective of these amendments would ensure that agencies provide readily-available public access to important legal materials in the most efficient way possible.
An Ad Hoc Committee considered this project in spring 2023.
