Federal Register Tutorial

Federal Register, the official newspaper of the U.S. government, was authorized by Congress in 1935 after the Supreme Court complained of the lack of a complete compilation of executive and administrative orders. It contains all presidential proclamations, executive orders, and federal agency regulations and proposed rules. It informs citizens of their rights and obligations, and it includes a listing of federal benefits and funding opportunities.

People read the Federal Register to learn about the daily operations of the federal government and how government actions are affecting health care, education, the environment, and other major issues.
