PRESIDENT OBAMA PUTS A HOLD ON NEW REGS

Rate this Entry

President Obama today ordered federal agencies to hold off publishing new regulations until the new White House has an opportunity to first review them. I'm not aware of any rules the Bush folks didn't get to during its regulatory dump over the last few months, but the order also had one interesting additional item for agency heads:

Consider extending for 60 days the effective date of
regulations that have been published in the Federal
Register but not yet taken effect, subject to the
exceptions described in paragraph I, for the purpose
of reviewing questions of law and policy raised by those
regulations. Where such an extension is made for this
purpose, you should immediately reopen the notice
and comment period for 30 days to allow interested parties
to provide comments about issues of law and policy raised
by those rules. Following the 60-day extension:

a. for those rules that raise no substantial questions
of law or policy, no further action needs to be taken;
and

b. for those rules that raise substantial questions of
law or policy, agencies should notify the OMB Director
and take appropriate further action.


The first item that comes to mind is the E-Verify federal contractor rule which is not scheduled to take effect until next month.

    What about the extension of US VISIT to Green Card holders, immigrant visa holders, refugees, parolees etc? Will this be repealed or is it irrevokable now that it is in operation(just slipped in before January 20th)?
