We’re LRAM-ping It Up To Another Level!

May 19, 2011

While there are many new features we’ve released as part of KM3, arguably the most exciting is our new Laws, Rules and Agency Materials page, or LRAM for short.

What’s so exciting about LRAM you ask?

Well, to begin with, it’s based upon a pretty interesting concept about what search can look like.  One of our goals was to improve upon traditional and cumbersome trial-and-error text searching. No more would users be required to be fluent in Boolean-ese and construct long, complex, strictly governed text strings. Instead, LRAM relies on basic keyword searching and a sidebar that displays filters along with the number of results for each data source, helping you refine your search as you go.

What information does LRAM cover?

LRAM allows for searching across the full US Code, CFR, and Federal Register, recent Congressional bills and legislation, as well as materials from:

  • Bureau of Land Management (BLM)
  • Congressional Budget Office (CBO)
  • Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC)
  • Department of Interior (DOI)
  • Department of Justice (DOJ)
  • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
  • Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)
  • Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)
  • Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA)
  • Federal Reserve Board (FRB)
  • Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
  • Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN)
  • Government Accountability Office (GAO)
  • National Credit Union Administration (NCUA)
  • National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)
  • Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC)
  • New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)
  • Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC)
  • Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)
  • Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA)
  • Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB)
  • Securities Exchange Commission (SEC)
  • Department of the Treasury
