Federal Regulation - The Updates

Keep an eye on this page for updates and streamlining; current year represents the running tally.

Note: Cross-reference "Significant" in the below with the corresponding "economically significant" numbers in the Ten Thousand Commandments report, which are derived from the twice-annual Unified Agenda. The Federal Register database uses the broader EO 12866 definition of what counts as a "significant" rule. Comparatively, what's presented in Ten Thousand Commandments is the lower figure for "economically significant" rules. The 10KC report will continue reflecting the lower number of more technically defined "economically significant" ($100 million) as opposed to broader "significant" rules, seen here. Knowing the accurate count for both is important.
