Obama Admin. Ignores Legal Deadline To Disclose Regulatory Plans, Economic Impact - Again By Craig Bannister Obama Admin. Ignores Legal Deadline To Disclose Regulatory Plans, Economic Impact - Again | CNSNews.com November 1, 2012 As of today, the Obama administration has missed its second straight legal deadline for disclosing its regulatory plans and their economic impact to Congress and the American public. No previous administration has ever failed to produce the report even once. Every administration is legally required to publish a report each April and October in the Federal Register to inform Congress and the public of the administrations regulatory agenda and its potential economic impact. The requirement is part of the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980. Other administrations have been late, but have never failed to issue the legally required report and Pres. Clinton even issued an Executive Order on compliance. After the administration failed to produce its April 2012 report, Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) wrote to Pres. Obama asking for compliance with the October deadline to no avail. Other congressmen and House committee members have also written to the Office of Management and Budgets (OMBs Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs Administrator asking that the law be followed and the report produced. The Obama administration continues to play a game of regulatory hide-and-seek with the American people. Current law was designed to protect the public's right to know about rules and regulations being crafted behind the closed doors of the federal bureaucracy." "Instead of providing the facts, the administration has obstructed the committee's search for answers. What is the president trying to hide? The American people deserve better than an imperial presidency that flouts the law and hides its regulatory ambitions." [/FONT]" Hmmm, Sound familiar? Stone Walling? Fast & Furious, and now Ben GhaziGate.
