SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 18, 2011, the President issued 
Executive Order 13563, Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review, to 
ensure that Federal regulations seek a more affordable, less intrusive 
means to achieve policy goals and that agencies give careful 
consideration to the benefits and costs of those regulations. The Order 
further directs agencies to develop a preliminary plan, consistent with 
law and its resources and regulatory priorities, under which the agency 
will periodically review its existing significant regulations to 
determine whether any such regulations should be modified, streamlined, 
expanded, or repealed so as to make the agency's regulatory program 
more effective or less burdensome in achieving the regulatory 
objectives. The Order can be accessed at http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/inforeg/eo12866/eo13563_01182011.pdf.
    To implement the Order, NASA developed its preliminary plan and 
issues this request seeking public comment on how best to review its 
existing regulations. NASA's plan is accessible on its Open Government 
Web site at http://www.nasa.gov/open/. Submit electronic comments 
through the Federal e-Rulemaking Portal at http://www.regulations.gov, 
or e-mail electronic comments to hq-regulatory-review@mail.nasa.gov. 
Include ``Regulatory Review'' in the subject line of the e-mail.

Richard Keegan,
Associate Deputy Administrator.
