USDA Releases Semi-Annual Regulatory Agenda

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has released its semi-annual regulatory agenda. This agenda provides summary descriptions of significant and non-significant regulations being developed in agencies of the United States in conformance with Executive Order 12866, “Regulatory Planning and Review.”

USDA has attempted to list all regulations and regulatory reviews pending at the time of publication, except for minor and routine or repetitive actions, but some may have been inadvertently missed. There is no legal significance to the omission of an item from this listing.

Also, the dates shown for the steps of each action are estimated and are not commitments to act on or by the date shown.

USDA’s complete regulatory agenda is available online at http://www.reginfo.gov/. Because publication in the Federal Register is mandated for the regulatory flexibility agendas required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 602), USDA’s printed agenda entries include only rules that are likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities and rules identified for periodic review under section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
