Washington's Thanksgiving Turkeys: Here Are All of the White House's 200 Economically Significant Rules

As usual, the president will pardon a turkey again this year for Thanksgiving. For us turkey eaters, though, our federal holiday treat is lots and lots of federal red tape.

In fact, the holiday was just used as cover for what some news reports called a White House dump of 3,415 regulations just before the break. You could stuff a lot of turkeys with that.

It’s really not unusual though. There are thousands of rules every year, in every administration.

A portion of these rules, though, are “economically significant” ones with impacts (usually costs rather than liberalizations) of at least $100 million every year.

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 each year exceeds 3,500, the number in the “economically significant” category over the past decade has ranged from as low as 127 to as high as 224 in each Fall’s Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions (the document just released).

The Agenda is like a year-end pipeline, a flow of rules and regulations at the "Active" (pre-rule, proposed and final rule states), "Completed" and "Long-term" phases. Very frequently the rules listed are holdovers from the year or years before. Each Fall edition, this one included, also includes a so-called "Regulatory Plan" from some agencies that highlights certain rules for attention.

Items that get featured or prioritized in the Agenda vary over the years, creating confusion and making it hard to compare Agendas. For example, the Obama administration recently told agencies not to talk so much anymore about their "Long-term" rules, when those are actually very important to know about for planning purposes.

Moreover, agencies are not legally bound to limit themselves only to what they present in their annual roundups.

In any event, here we put a face on the current batch of "economically significant" rules: There was a total of 3,415 rules in the Fall 2014 Unified Agenda, as we’ve noted, with 200 of them designated as economically significant.

Of these, 131 are “active,” 31 recently “completed,” and 38 “long-term.” The full list appears down below the break with plenty turkeys in the lineup like these.

Herein you may find such delights as:

  • The Department of Energy's totalitarian drive to regulate everything that uses energy (from dehumidifiers to vending machines to ice makers); It’s less expensive and invasive to just use solid state controls to turn things off when they’re not used.
  • The Department of Health and Human services regulation of labels on pet food; requirements for calorie count postings for vending machines and restaurants; and rules for school lunch contents.
  • The Environmental Protection Agency's campaign against ordinary wood fires and of course, all fossil energy.
  • FDA’s portion size regulations for things like breath mints.
  • Several rules implementing parts of the Dodd-Frank financial reform law.

Of course, many other rules are significant in fact, but don’t get labeled that way by the government, including the Federal Communications Commission’s net neutrality rules, and proposals to require that quiet electric vehicles make noise (the same expensive, in-fact coal-powered vehicles that had to be subsidized into existence).

Below, rules are broken down by department or agency, and by stage of completion. (And if you’re diving even more deeply over the holiday, the “Regulation Identifier Number” appears at the end of each entry below.)
