Its a new year and you know what that means new regulations. The Obama administration has wasted no time in writing them.
The website Regulations.gov lists 141 regulations that have been posted by federal agencies in the last three days alone. Of these regulations, 119 are rulemaking, meaning they establish a new rule. Twenty-three are non-rulemaking, meaning the regulations does not establish a new rule.
The largest group of regulations have to do with energy and environmental issues, many of them issued by the Environmental Protection Agency. One new EPA regulation is an amendment to a rule on hazardous emissions from lead smelters.

I will eliminate all executive regulations when I get elected. The law should stand on its own....no regulations.
Any mention on who is exempt from the new rules?
When I get to be President I will order all of these regulations voided by Executive Order.
The various departments should not be able to issue regulations which have the same weight as laws. I thought that was Congress’ job. Silly me.
Before the spelling Nazis come out.....it was a typo Congress’s.
Isn't that rich? The EPA just forced the shutdown of the last lead smelter in the US that processes raw lead ore.
I suppose the new reg will regulate smelters that refine recycled lead.
Congress should be in session for a week every other year UNLESS we are truly attacked. Then called into a special session to vote for or against war action.
In one week they can pass a budget for two years. Then go home! Why do we continue to need new laws? You’d think that after more than 200 years we’d have figured it out.
