For immediate release
The Federal Reserve Board on Tuesday announced a number of improvements to its web site, including the capability to view and submit comments on regulatory proposals.
Comments on regulatory proposals can be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or http://www.federalreserve.gov/generalinfo/foia/. The public can also view and submit comments on proposals by the Board and other federal agencies from the www.regs.gov web site. The Board will continue to process public comments delivered by standard mail and fax.
In addition, the Board has expanded the offerings on its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) web pages. Public comments on proposed regulations, other proposals, and information collections are posted at: http://www.federalreserve.gov/generalinfo/foia/ProposedRegs.cfm.
The Board has also established two special sections on its web site. One section contains Federal Reserve documents relating to the proposed Basel II Capital Accord under the heading "Banking Information and Regulation." Updates related to Basel II, as well as historical documentation, can now be found at http://www.federalreserve.gov/generalinfo/basel2/default.htm.
The second section is dedicated to the Federal Reserve System's financial education efforts and contains educational tools on personal finance gathered from across the Federal Reserve System. Users have easy access to multiple resources, including information on e-banking, shopping for a mortgage, preventing identity theft, consumer credit protections, and economic education. The site is at http://www.federalreserveeducation.org/.
