The Comment on a Regulation action type will allow your stakeholders to weigh in with regulatory agencies whose proposed rules and regulations are open for public comment. Any docket publicly accessible on Regulations.gov is able to be linked through SparkInfluence for your stakeholders to take action on.
First, on the “Let’s Dive Into the Basics” screen, be sure to set a time frame over which your form will be live, and add any tags that you’d like assigned to new stakeholders in the appropriate field.
Next, on the “Action Messaging” screen, copy and paste your template comments into the field on the left. On the right hand side of the screen, select the appropriate agency, and copy and paste the Docket Number into the second field.
To find the docket number, access the comment page on Regulations.gov and the ID number will be listed somewhere on the right hand side of the screen. See below for an example.
Follow the directions to work through the final screens and publish the action.
Important note: If you return to the docket to check to see if your stakeholders have submitted comments, and don’t find any, please keep in mind the following from Regulations.gov.
This count refers to the total comment/submissions received on this document, as of 11:59 PM yesterday. Note: Agencies review all submissions, however some agencies may choose to redact, or withhold, certain submissions (or portions thereof) such as those containing private or proprietary information, inappropriate language, or duplicate/near duplicate examples of a mass-mail campaign. This can result in discrepancies between this count and those displayed when conducting searches on the Public Submission document type. For specific information about an agency’s public submission policy, refer to its website or the Federal Register document.
