December 7, 2010 – The White House is releasing guidance that will promote electronic dockets for rulemaking. The result will be a living document open to public comment during an event hosted by the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. 

We found this information on Fierce Government IT in their article, “Sunstein: E-rulemaking best practices document will be out in days.” The document aims to achieve improved e-rulemaking, better public access to federal regulatory content, use of a common taxonomy and protocols for managing documents and dockets, and increased agency efficiency. 

These are some huge goals for one document. However, it is inspiring to see their aspirations set so high and of course, we’re all for viable uses for taxonomies.
