Here Are the Obama Administration's 191 Big-Dollar "Economically Significant" Rules and Regulations

If you pay any attention to the debate over federal regulation (there are at least three or four of you), you inevitably hear about "economically significant" rules, and are then told that they have economic impacts (usually costs rather than liberalizations) of at least $100 million annually. The technical definition is actually different, but such rules are also often referred to as "major" rules. In any event, while the total number of rules and regulations each year tops 3,500, the number of them in the economically significant category over the past decade has ranged from as low as 127 to as high as 224 in the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions each Fall. The Agenda is like looking at a year-end pipeline, a flow of rules at the "Active" (pre-rule, proposed and final rule states), "Completed" and "Long-term" stages. Often rules are repeats from the year or years before. The Fall edition also includes a so-called "Regulatory Plan" for some agencies that singles out some rules for attention. Items that get featured or prioritized in the Agenda vary over the years. For example, the Obama administration recently told agencies not to talk so much anymore about their languishing "Long-term" rules, which can be good or bad. It is also the case that Agencies are not legally bound to limit themselves only to what they present in their annual Agendas. In any event, here we put a face on the current batch of "economically significant" rules: There was a total of 3,305 rules in the Fall 2013 Unified Agenda, with 191 designated as economically significant. Herein you may find such delights as regulation of pet food labeling; the Environmental Protection Agency's campaign against plain old wood fires; the federal (not even state) regulation of school lunch contents; and the Department of Energy's totalitarian lust to regulate literally, not even figuratively, everything that uses energy. And let's not forget sound mandates for the quiet electric (expensive, coal-powered) vehicles subsidized into existence in the first place. Rules are broken down by each agency's Regulatory Plan and Agenda, as well as by each rule's stage of completion. The envelope, please...
