White House Quietly Releases Plans For 3,415 Regulations Ahead Of Thanksgiving Holiday

Monday, 24 November 2014

Late last Friday, the Friday before Thanksgiving, the White House quietly released the annual fall Unified Federal Agenda -the document that sets a road map for the thousands of upcoming and pending regulations federal agencies plan to release. This is the fifth time the Obama Administration has released its regulatory agenda the eve of a major holiday.

The fall 2014 Unified Agenda includes 2,415 regulations -an increase over last agenda, including nearly 190 major rules that cost the economy more than $100 million. Sadly, this increase in regulations comes as no surprise for small business owners across the country.
