Rogan’s List for 06/08/2020

3 mins read


On Mondays, Rogan’s List features a listing of proposed rule and regulation changes that are currently accepting public comment.  Commenting is the way to show government agencies how we feel about these proposed changes. Our comments also become part of a record that will be reviewed by courts if and when a reg change is contested. Courts use comments to judge whether an agency is acting arbitrarily and capriciously.


Closing Soon


Section I – ICE, DHS, DOL, NLRB

Section II – everything environmental – EPA, BLM, DOE

Section III – Civil rights, housing, education, healthcare

Other: More on regulations (tracking the trackers/general information)  

(Note: After a couple of weeks items are moved from “Recent” and “Closing soon” into the Roman numeral sections. A note on regulatory processes: there are three stages – Notice, Proposed Rule, and Rule. There’s usually a time lag of a few months to a few years between them, and they must be published in the Federal Register before appearing on Comment time varies from 10 days to 2 months, sometimes with extensions.)

This week’s list – I would highlight not only closing items but under recent, two Trump Executive Actions – one an order, one a proclamation. The Executive Order uses the current emergency to order relaxation of environmental rules to speed up infrastructure projects, involving multiple agencies. The Presidential Proclamation removes protections for undersea monuments. Finally, I would highlight Skopos Labs tracking of the government including legislative and regulatory response to COVID-19 – it really is a great resource. Here’s the list:
