New Federal Regulation Tracking Site

OpenRegs.com is an user-friendly regulatory portal with the stated goal, "to make the proposed and final regulations published in the Federal Register easy to find and discuss, so that citizens can become better informed and more involved in the regulatory process."  The site promotes itself as being, "an alternative to the federal government's Regulations.gov regulatory dockets database," while acknowledging that it "is not a substitute for visiting Regulations.gov."  Nonetheless, the website offers the ability to browse by and subscribe to individual agencies and topics codes, user-submitted related links, and Web 2.0 technologies in the form of blogs and discussion forums for each agency and regulation.  It tells users when proposed regulations' comments periods will close to the day.
