EPA Announces Regulatory Priorities
On Dec. 10, EPA released its Regulatory Plan, which describes 30 of
the most significant regulations the agency's plans to issue by next
EPA also released its Semiannual Regulatory Agenda, which describes
over 300 actions under development or review, as well as those
completed or withdrawn since the Spring 2007 agenda was published. For
the first time, the bulk of EPA's agenda is available exclusively
online rather than on paper in the Federal Register (http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/EPA-GENERAL/2007/December/Day-10/g04839.htm).
Moving to an online agenda saves resources and provides users with a
more useful, searchable mechanism for accessing regulatory information.
It also helps meet e-Government objectives while saving taxpayers money
by significantly reducing printing costs, officials said.
EPA also is making printed copies of the agenda available upon
request. These hardcopies are available by calling 1-800-490-9198 or by
(E-mail requests should include the requestor's name and address and
display "Regulatory Agenda Hard Copy" in the subject line.)
