Make government publications such as the Federal Register, CFRs, rules, regulations, newsletters, patent updates, export administration regulations available only as online versions. Printing hard copies every 3-4 months because rules and regulations change regularly are a complete waste of tax payers’ money. The hard copies are obsolete within a few months. If an organization wants a hard copy, they can download and print out the relevant pages. This will save the government millions of dollars and also help the environment by conserving trees.
