This link fails; you might try the Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) site. From there:

New Era of Commercial Human Space Flight

Dec. 30 – FAA is proposing new rules specifically relating to crew and
passengers on commercial space flights. Proposed rules focus on
encouraging, facilitating, and promoting space tourism in a way that
continuously improves safety.

    * Fact Sheet on Commercial Human Space Flight

Released on my natal anniversary; not a bad birthday present from
Uncle Sam, and certainly the nicest thing the FAA did for me all year
