This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

On January 29, 2010, the President signed Executive Order 13530, creating the Council to assist the American people in understanding financial matters and making informed financial decisions, thereby contributing to financial stability. The Council is composed of two ex officio Federal officials and 11 non-governmental members appointed by the President with relevant backgrounds, such as financial services, consumer protection, financial access, and education. The role of the Council is to advise the President and the Secretary of the Treasury (“Secretary”) on means to promote and enhance individuals' and families' financial capability. The Council held its first meeting on November 30, 2010, its second on April 21, 2011, and its third on July 12, 2011. At the July 12 meeting, the Council outlined five guiding principles based on the current state of financial education and access, to serve as an aid to the Council in making its final recommendations to the President and the Secretary. Also on July 12, the Council identified three themes. Together, the principles and themes will serve as the framework for the final recommendations the Council will make to the President and the Secretary. The Council also believes there are many alternative tactics that can be used to achieve the goals expressed in the themes. In particular, the Council is interested in approaches that have proven to be effective in advancing the three themes and can be scaled up. Please include examples and associated research supporting the effectiveness of the approaches. Each of the Council subcommittees (Access, Partnerships, Research and Evaluation, and Youth) will review the timely submitted comments to inform their recommendations to the full Council.
Request for Comments: Comments are requested on both the themes and principles, and tactics that will achieve their goals. In particular, the Council is interested in approaches that have proven to be effective in advancing the three themes and can be scaled up. Commenters are urged to keep comments succinct and relevant to the content expressed by the themes and principles; therefore we request responses no longer than three pages. The themes and principles are posted on the Department's Web site: http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/financial-education/Pages/July122011.aspx.Start Signature
