After congressional bills become laws, federal departments and agencies are responsible for implementing those laws through regulations. Regulations are developed through the federal rulemaking process. In general, departments and agencies publish proposed rules for public comment in the Federal Register for at least 30 days. At the conclusion of the comment period, departments or agencies consider the public comments received and then issue a final rule (which is also published in the Federal Register).
