On November 19th, the Office of the Federal Register announced the creation of the Electronic Public Inspection Desk to provide immediate, public access to all on-file documents before they are published in the Federal Register. Historically, a citizen would have to visit the Office of the Federal Register in Washington to view the physical copies before their publication. Now, all you need is a computer, an internet connection, and the knowhow to type www.federalregister.gov into your web browser.
