Week in Regulation: $282 Million in Activity
After a week of everything, this week in regulation was mostly nonexistent in terms of regulatory volume and significant rulemakings. Other than a slate of routine airworthiness directives, the only notable regulation was an “Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices” proposal from the Department of Agriculture. The per capita regulatory burden for 2016 is $241.
This week there were 41 proposed rules and 61 final rules. In 2016 there have been 22,510 total pages of new regulation, $15.9 billion in proposed rules, and $61.9 billion in final rules.
