On Mondays, Rogan’s List features a listing of proposed rule and regulation changes that are currently accepting public comment. Commenting is the way to show government agencies how we feel about these proposed changes. Our comments also become part of a record that will be reviewed by courts if and when a reg change is contested. Courts use comments to judge whether an agency is acting arbitrarily and capriciously.
Section I - ICE, DHS, DOL, NLRB
Section II - everything environmental - EPA, BLM, DOE
Section III - Civil rights, housing, education, healthcare
Other: More on regulations (tracking the trackers/general information)
(Note: After a couple of weeks items are moved from “Recent” and “Closing soon” into the Roman numeral sections. A note on regulatory processes: there are three stages - Notice, Proposed Rule, and Rule. There’s usually a time lag of a few months to a few years between them, and they must be published in the Federal Register before appearing on Regulations.gov. Comment time varies from 10 days to 2 months, sometimes with extensions.)
This week’s list - closing is misnamed Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science, extension of comment period for collecting biometric data on undocumented persons, Trump's ordering meatpacking workers back to work under Defense Production Act as cases and deaths mount, allowing SBA loans to religious organizations and more. Under new - over 350 COVID-!9 emergency notices and proposed rules, some temporary (moving target) and sweeping proposals to review Obama-era Small Business Admin regulations affecting minority, veteran and women-owned businesses. This is a partial list. Also, over-riding Oregon EPA to allow LNG pipeline to Coos Bay.
