Rulemaking is the policy-making process for Executive and Independent agencies of the Federal government. Agencies use this process to develop and issue Rules (also known as “Regulations”).  On average, Federal agencies and departments issue nearly 8,000 regulations per year on various interests and industries. As part of each rule-making process, extensive data is collected from various participants including public comments. The amount of data collected in “Dockets” for each rule can be staggering. However, this data can be a valuable source of intelligence for interested stakeholders. The problem; such large datasets are difficult to harness and even harder to synthesize into meaningful and actionable intelligence. Until now…
