Agencies rush to publish rules before Trump takes office | TheHill


The Federal Register was overwhelmed Thursday with nearly 1,500 pages worth of rules from federal agencies. Miriam Kleiman, a spokeswoman for the Federal Register, described it as “one of the largest ever” editions of the government’s rule book.

The rules are known as midnight regulations, and represent a final attempt by the Obama administration to leave a mark on Washington’s rulebooks before Trump takes over at the White House.

Trump has called for a freeze on all new regulations, and the president-elect and congressional Republicans are expected to try to roll back rules they disagree with.
