CNS | Strangulation: Obama imposes 68 new government regulations per day

In the past 90 days, it has posted 6,125 regulations and notices – an average of 68 a day.

The website allows visitors to find and comment on proposed  regulations and related documents published by the U.S. federal  government. "Help improve Federal regulations by submitting your  comments," the website says.

The thousands of entries run the gamut from meeting notifications to fee schedules to actual rules and proposed rule changes.

In recent days, for example, the EPA posted a proposed rule involving  volatile organic compound emissions from architectural coatings: “We  are approving a local rule that regulates these emission sources under  the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act),” the proposed rule states. “We are  taking comments on this proposal and plan to follow with a final  action.”

Another proposed rule will provide guidance for FDA staff on "enforcement criteria for canned ackee, frozen ackee, and other ackee  products that contain hypoglycin A."  (Ackee is the national fruit of  Jamaica; unripened or inedible portions can be toxic.)
