From a report at the link below:
It’s a new year and you know what that means — new regulations. The Obama administration has wasted no time in writing them.
The website Regulations.gov lists 141 regulations that have been posted by federal agencies in the last three days alone. Of these regulations, 119 are “rulemaking,” meaning they establish a new rule. Twenty-three are “non-rulemaking,” meaning the regulations does not establish a new rule.
Most of the new regs have to do with environmental issues.
Mr. Obama gets a lot of backing from environmental groups and it shows in these new regulations. Many of them have been issued by the Environmental Protection Agency.
The agency is also working on 134 major and minor regulations that will take effect in the coming years.
The Obama administration has been dragging its feet on the Keystone XL Pipeline. Now it’s the war on coal which could cripple the economy of a large portion of West Virginia and substantially increase the cost of electricity.
