The data was collected with the intent of assessing agency and corporate behavior within the context of their interaction across multiple regulatory notice and comment periods. The additional influence of media coverage and its impact on agency and corporate interaction was also assessed. Whereas the regulatory notice and comment process has commonly been a focus of public administration research, this particular study is unique in accounting for media influence on the frequency of corporate or industry comments together with their ultimate impact on regulatory outcomes.
