Virtual Public Engagement in Agency Rulemaking

This project studies and offers recommendations on agencies’ efforts to promote enhanced transparency, accessibility, and accountability by using virtual tools to engage the public in connection with agency rulemaking activities. It explores a variety of practical issues, including when agencies should offer either fully or partially virtual meetings and how to structure those meetings in a way that meets public expectations and promotes valuable input for the agency. It also examines the legal constraints under which agencies operate.
