Hearing about executive orders and federal rules in the news?

The National Archives has a website with sources to explain how you can find proposed federal rules and other presidential documents: http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/

They also explain the importance of the Federal Register, the “official gazette of the United States Government” and what it is at http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/the-federal-register/

    Published daily, it has:

  • Federal Agency Regulations
  • Proposed Rules and Public Notices
  • Executive Orders
  • Proclamations
  • Other Presidential Documents 

Administrative history buffs can read about the beginning of the Federal Register in March 1936 and its history at http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/the-federal-register/history.pdf .

Just need a Federal Register citation or a past rule in a prior version of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs) from the last seventy or so years?   Want a copy of an early presidential executive order?  Call the State Library of Arizona at (602) 926-3870 or email research@azlibrary.gov and we will search our print and online resources to find what you need!
