OIRA reviewed 475 significant rules in 2019

The White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) reviewed a total of 475 significant regulatory actions issued by federal agencies in 2019. The agency reviewed a total of 355 significant rules in 2018 and 237 significant rules in 2017.

As of January 3, 2020, OIRA’s website listed 132 regulatory actions under review.

OIRA is responsible for reviewing and coordinating what it deems to be all significant regulatory actions made by federal agencies, with the exception of independent federal agencies. Significant regulatory actions include agency rules that have had or may have a large impact on the economy, environment, public health, or state and local governments and communities. These regulatory actions may also conflict with other regulations or with the priorities of the president.

Every month, Ballotpedia compiles information about regulatory reviews conducted by OIRA. To view this project, click here.
