In Past 90 Days Obama Admin Posts 68 New Regulations Each Day

In keeping some of the most controversial environmental and healthcare regulations under wraps during the month of October, the federal government has posted to its regulations website an average of 68 new regulations and notifications. The total comes to 6,125 in the past 90 days as of Friday November 9!

Penny Starr reports,

The thousands of entries run the gamut from meeting notifications to fee schedules to actual rules and proposed rule changes.

In recent days, for example, the EPA posted a proposed rule involving volatile organic compound emissions from architectural coatings: “We are approving a local rule that regulates these emission sources under the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act),” the proposed rule states. “We are taking comments on this proposal and plan to follow with a final action.”

Another proposed rule will provide guidance for FDA staff on "enforcement criteria for canned ackee, frozen ackee, and other ackee products that contain hypoglycin A." (Ackee is the national fruit of Jamaica; unripened or inedible portions can be toxic.)

Some of the proposed regulations revise regulations already on the books.

The website also links to a video of a speech President Barack Obama gave at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 7, 2011, in which the president promised to remove “outdated and unnecessary regulations.”

Barack Obama said “I've ordered a government-wide review, and if there are rules on the books that are needlessly stifling job creation and economic growth, we will fix them."

Tony Lee at Breitbart writes:

These regulations are hardly those that would be deemed "economically significant" (regulations that would have at least a $100 million impact on the economy), but now that Obama has been reelected, many more of such "economically significant" regulations will be rolled out in the coming weeks and months.

These are unnecessary regulations that have no real impact except to produce bigger government, but not to actually help anything. The posts range from dealing with "volatile organic compound emissions from architectural coatings" under the Clean Air Act to a 12 month finding that deals with the endangered status for the Acuna Cactus and the Fickesian Plains Cactus as well as designation of the critical habita. These things are simply more evidence that the federal government has no intention of slowing down its pace of expansion and no doubt we will be reading about certain funding going towards these regulations and agencies that will have to deal with them in next year's Wastebook.
