Fall 2022 Regulatory Agenda Announced
The Biden Administration has announced is Fall 2022 Regulatory Agenda which provides the administration’s regulatory plans for the year and beyond. Executive Order 12866, issued in 1993, requires the annual production of a Unified Regulatory Agenda and Regulatory Plan. It does so in order to promote transparency – or in the words of the Executive Order itself, “to have an effective regulatory program, to provide for coordination of regulations, to maximize consultation and the resolution of potential conflicts at an early stage, to involve the public and its State, local, and tribal officials in regulatory planning, and to ensure that new or revised regulations promote the President's priorities and the principles set forth in this Executive order.”

OSHA has included several action items within the Fall regulatory agena that NFFS is closely following, including:
