Tired of fake news? We don’t blame you! It’s almost always advisable to do your own research — on trusted sites — when you hear something you’re not sure you should believe — and that includes plenty of what you hear in the media. Information about new government rules and regulations can be easily checked in the Federal Register. This is a central repository of all government agency’s regulations — as opposed to previous days when each agency would publish its own notices, bulletins etc. When even the Department of Justice couldn’t figure out what the current rules were a centralized approach was developed.

 +re you a curious techie or perhaps have a friend who is? The Federal Register has an API that lets you have access to all the site’s contents since 1994. Installing the Federal Register package is relatively simple. It would make it easy for you to see, for example, all the Executive Orders that have been issued since that time — so that would be under Obama, Bush, and Clinton. You can also retrieve the executive orders to see precisely what they say. So if you’re not sure you’re always getting a complete and unbiased story from your news sources you can always go directly to the official source for much government-related information.
