Submitting Comments to Regulations.gov
Users have noticed that links from FR 2.0 to Regulations.gov do not always work, even though a comment docket has been created on Regulations.gov. The source of the problem is that FR 2.0 and Regulations.gov are updated at different times. When FR 2.0 crawls Regulations.gov before that site creates comment dockets for new Federal Register documents, we fail to make a connection between the two sites. This appears to affect only day one of a comment period; the connection is present on day two forward.
We are addressing this missing link by crawling Regulations.gov more frequently to establish a more solid connection between newly open documents and newly open comment dockets.
