ce of Information and Regulatory AffairsOf 
ce of Management and BudgetWashington, DC 20503Re: Request for Information 2012–7602, 77 FR 19357Dear Mr. Sunstein:We believe it is imperative that the law be readily accessible for all to read and use. That is acentral requirement of our democratic system. Accordingly, we strongly agree that standardsincorporated by reference into federal regulations should be widely available to the public,without charge, and that such standards should be deemed in the public domain rather thansubject to copyright restrictions.Collectively, our organizations work on a range of public policy issues, including health, safety,consumer protection, the environment, open government, and civil rights. Allowing free accessto standards incorporated by reference will strengthen the capacity of organizations like ours toengage in rulemaking processes, analyze issues, and work for solutions to public policychallenges. Such open access to standards will help protect public safety, promote economicopportunity, increase access to justice, and strengthen citizen participation in our democracy.We ask the Administration to implement reforms that make standards incorporated by referencein proposed rules and in final rules available for free on the Internet.Sincerely,Robert WeissmanPresidentPublic CitizenOn behalf of:AFL-CIOAFSCMEAmerican Association of Law Libraries
