The Epoch Times cites Vice President for Policy Wayne Crews on Ten Thousand Commandments:
Exactly how many federal departments, independent agencies, commissions, and boards there are is a source of debate among governance experts. The total changes annually.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Clyde Wayne Crews, author of the annual “Ten Thousand Commandments” compilation of federal regulations, told The Epoch Times on Oct. 24: “There are at least 250 federal agencies and programs. This matters because, if we can’t find the agencies, we aren’t going to be able to locate whatever rules or guidance they expect us to abide. Congress passes a few dozen rules every year; agencies, thru notice and comment, pass several thousand.”
