Each Federal workday, the Federal Register publishes (in both paper and electronic format) current Presidential proclamations and Executive orders, Federal agency regulations having general applicability and legal effect, proposed agency rules, and documents required by statute to be published. All Federal regulations in force are codified annually in the Code of Federal Regulations.
Presidential speeches, news conferences, messages, and other materials released by the White House Office of the Press Secretary are published each week in the Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents and annually in the Public Papers of the Presidents.
The United States Government Manual, published annually, serves as the official handbook of the Federal Government, providing extensive information on agencies of the legislative, judicial, and executive branches.
