    White House Quietly Releases Plans For 3,415 Regulations Ahead Of Thanksgiving Holida

    While Americans are focused on what delicious foods they’re going to eat for Thanksgiving, the White House is focused on releasing its massive regulatory agenda — marking the fifth time the Obama administration has released its regulatory road map on the eve of a major holiday.The federal Unified Agenda is the Obama administration’s regulatory road map, and it lays out thousands of regulations being finalized in the coming months. Under President Barack Obama, there has been a tradition of releasing the agenda late on Friday — and right before a major holiday.
    “It’s become an unfortunate tradition of this administration and others to drop these regulatory agendas late on a Friday and right before a holiday

    snip

    One of the most contentious rules is the Environmental Protection Agency rules to limit greenhouse gas emissions from new and existing power plants. According to the agenda, these rules will be finalized in 2015.
    They have been criticized by Republicans and the coal industry for accelerating the demise of coal-fired power and for setting the stage for increases in electricity prices. Republicans, who are set to take control of the Senate next year, have vowed to fight EPA regulations.

    snip

    But probably the most fought-over rules to be finalized by the EPA next year will be its redefining of the “Waters of the United States” under the Clean Water Act. The EPA will issue its redefinition next year, according to the agenda.
    Federal lawmakers from both parties, along with companies from virtually every sector of the economy, have opposed the rule, saying it greatly expands the EPA’s power to regulate even small bodies of water on private property.

    So, once again, here we go...The "most transparent administration in history" is hoping you won't notice what they are doing behind the curtain....Say goodbye to affordable energy, and even private property rights with this kind of crap...And the whole rub is that he does this without congressional input....Damn the people, we don't even need a congress anymore, we have a king.

    I agree that the Obama adminstration is not transparent, but i would say this is not an example of that. You say that they hope you wont pay attention to this, that is not a problem of transparency, that is the problem of people simply being lazy...

    It is not a very nice way to do politics and does not make people trust the man. But he cannot be reelected. So why should he care?

    We are never going to learn it seems. The more we appeal to government to fix some problem the more we are disappointed with the results. And now we need all these new regulations? Absurd.

    The problem of transparency is in the timing that they choose to release information about what they do...Why else would they release this right before holidays? I'll tell you, because if they were to make known what they are doing there would be revolt!

    He's going to do a lot of damage in 2 years if we take that stance on it....

    Obama has to reduce coal consumption in the US because he has such a cozy "climate change" deal worked out with the Chinese where they'll get to use all the dirty US coal they want for the next 16 years while you freeze in the dark or fore go food in exchange for heat and light. Besides, the Chinese will pay top dollar for that good old American coal too.

    And Obama will bask in the glory bestowed on him by the low information voters, referred to affectionately as stupid by their Democrat masters, who think Obama is the environment President.

    Interesting, how did the Daily Caller get a hold of the report then?

    A "revolt"?
