The U.S. Government Printing Office’s (GPO) Federal Digital System (FDsys) has achieved the milestone of one billion document retrievals.
The one billionth document retrieved on FDsys was a Federal Register notice from the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The most retrieved item on FDsys is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148), with more than 14 million retrievals since the law was passed in March 2010.
