Where did all the rules go? Liberalization and deciding not to regulate has not been an Obama administration priority. EPA rules have never been lower than 2011's 318 in the past decade. It seems we're getting only part of the story and Congress should take a look. EPA omits any narrative on its Regulatory Plan on its homepage, unlike previous years.
A narrative does appear on a separate webpage -- and is dated December 24, 2012, later even than the overall federal Unified Agenda of which this material should have been a component, and too late for a 2012 audit to have occurred.
