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.
Section I – ICE, DHS, DOL, NLRBS
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 Regulations.gov. Comment time varies from 10 days to 2 months, sometimes with extensions.)
This week’s list. Further attacks on immigrants, wildlife refuges, national forests, and environmental regulations. What’s left? Removing civil rights for trans folks final rule – originally here as proposed rule in 2019. Everything is misnamed. “Civil rights” means lack of, “transparency” means obfuscation. Very Orwellian.
