Trump Administration Releases First Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions [August 07, 2017]   [open pdf - 111KB]

"On July 20, 2017, the Trump Administration released its first Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions (hereafter Unified Agenda). The Unified Agenda--which is usually published twice a year--is a governmentwide publication of rulemaking actions agencies expect to take in the coming months and, as the name suggests, contains both regulatory actions (i.e., new regulations) and deregulatory actions (i.e., reductions in or elimination of current regulations). At present, the Unified Agenda does not contain a way to separate deregulatory actions from regulatory actions. According to an interview with the newly confirmed Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) Administrator, Neomi Rao, however, the next edition may have a different classification system, allowing agencies to indicate which items are regulatory and which are deregulatory."
