by Sabrina I. Pacifici on January 20, 2009

Following previous postings on Bush Administration Midnight regs, this report by ABC News: “This afternoon, White House Chief of Staff and Assistant to the president, Rahm Emanuel issued a memorandum ordering all U.S. government agencies to stop implementing any pending rules and regulations issued by the Bush administration until the Obama administration has an opportunity to review and sign off on them.”

  • From the text of the memo: “…no proposed or final regulation should be sent to the Office of the Federal Register (the “OFR”) unless and until it has been reviewed or approved by a department or agency head designated by the President after noon on January 20, 2009…”
