Not really regulation.  The FTC did this about open relays a while
back.  And they are in touch with ISPs - go to any antispam conference
(MAAWG, ITU/OECD etc) and you'll find at least some people from the
FTC, FCC, commerce, state as well as  people from assorted law
enforcement agencies.

They still would definitely welcome more operational perspective, and
the recommendations they're forwarding on appear to be a precis of the
MAAWG bcp for ISPs ... so this is government  / regulators in an
educating / facilitating role rather than a regulatory role.
