Federal Regulation Update: 224 Economically Significant Rules In The Pipeline

by Wayne Crews on January 16, 2013 · 1 comment

in Deregulate to Stimulate, Economy, Regulation

The federal government’s Fall Regulatory Plan and the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions finally appeared the Friday before Christmas (the Spring 2012 one never appeared).

In all, there are 4,062 rules at various stages in the regulatory/rulemaking pipeline. The last time there were fewer than 4,000 was back in 2007 (there were 3,882 then).

A portion of these rules are deemed “economically significant,” meaning they have impacts on the economy of at least (could be more) $100 million annually or significantly impact government operations. Those impacts could be to decrease costs, and it’s a cute sentiment, but that’s not how the regulatory enterprise usually works.

There are 224 economically significant rules in the pipeline now.

The Departments with the most (the top seven, in this instance) are as follows:

Dept. of Health & Human Services: 64
Dept. of Agriculture: 20
Environmental Protection Agency: 20
Dept. of Energy: 18
Dept. of Labor: 17
Dept. of Homeland Security: 15
Dept. of Transportation: 15

Below appears a breakdown I compiled of what all 224 of those rules are, derived from both the Regulatory Plan and the Unified Agenda:

*Note: For hard-core types, the “Regulation Identifier Number” appears at the end of each entry below. Sequential numbers in print editions of the Regulatory Plan and Unified Agenda no longer apply.
