Comments Off

The Chicago Tribune (1/20) reports that "Obama’s team is conducting a wholesale review of scores of rules and regulations set in motion by Bush administration officials as his term wound down, the aides said, with an eye toward putting them on hold until the review is completed. Critics say some of the rules weaken worker protections and civil liberties." The Tribune adds that "for weeks, Obama aides have been reviewing at the so-called ‘midnight’ regulations approved by federal agencies" and "many are still in a mandatory waiting period and could be stopped by the new administration for further review.
