US EPA Home Page redesigned
http://www.epa.gov/

The United States Environmental Protection Agency
introduceda new home page on October 15, 1996 that is designed to be
more intuitive for all users of the EPA and its information.
Among its features, the new site includes six user
categories: Kids, Students and Teachers, Concerned Citizens,
Researchers and Scientists, Business and Industry, and
State, Local, and Tribal Governments. The user categories
contain a selection of links to material that is appropriate
and of interest for their respective category.

Topical categories have been retained and refined from
the previous site and include: About EPA; EPA News; Offices,
Regions & Labs; Programs and Initiatives; Regulatory
Information; Contracts, Grants and Financing; Publications;
Information Services; and Systems and Software. Additional
features include a browse function to connect to offices
dealing with specific environmental issues and a search
screen that allows searching the entire site or specific
areas of the EPA's web resources.

Code of Federal Regulations - Official Electronic Copy

The effort to significantly increase public access to
the CFR is a joint project of the CFR's publisher, the National
Archives and Records Administration's Office of the Federal
Register, and the Government Printing Office, (GPO), which
continues to sell paper Federal Register issues and CFR
volumes through its Superintendent of Documents Sales
service.
The new CFR volumes appear online as WAIS databases,
accessible through the World Wide Web, with WAIS client
software, or via telnet or dial-in access. The initial
titles introduced include: Title 20 (Parts 400-499)
Employees' Benefits, Title 21 (all parts) Food and Drugs and
Title 40 (Parts 87 to 135) Protection of the Environment.
Titles will be added incrementally throughout calendar years
1996 and 1997 until a complete set is available. GPO is in
the process of reconfiguring workforces and procedures in an
attempt to make all CFR volumes available online concurrent
with their release in print.
