The "Open legalacts" portal is one of the components of the "Open Government" project, created as a platform for discussing draft normative legal acts until they are coordinated in state and local executive bodies.

Every citizen can get acquainted with the published normative legal documents and make their suggestions for their improvement.

If you could not find the required document by the above parameters, then you can use the search.
Each published normative legal act contains information on its status, type, date of creation and the deadline for the end of public discussion. The documents attached to it in the form of files can be downloaded.
If you have comments on a line of the document's main content, you can add a separate comment to each of them.
All user comments are displayed at the bottom of the page, and you can vote for each of them with the "For" and "Against" marks.
Note that authorization on the portal to leave comments is desirable, but not necessary, since commenting functionality is provided through the indication of the name, email and the filling of the "captcha" mechanism.
Authorization on the portal is required if you intend to actively participate in the discussion of published regulatory legal acts by subscribing to the tracking of changes in individual documents or sections (Categories/CSBs).
