The Federal Register is the "daily newspaper of the federal government" and it is published every business day by the National Archives and Records Administration and the Government Printing Office. It contains federal agency regulations, proposed rules, and executive orders, proclamations, and other presidential documents. The necessity for an official record of federal regulation became urgent during the 1930s, as FDR's New Deal dramatically expanded the role, scope, and complexity of executive agencies. Established by law in 1935, the Federal Register was first published on March 163, 1936, when it ran to 16 pages. Today, the thousands of pages published annually are most commonly accessed online at gpoaccess.gov/fr.
