Obama sets new record for regulations: 527 pages in 1 day
President Obama on Thursday set a record for the most pages of federal rules and regulations ever issued in a year by one president, adding 572 pages to the Federal Register, bringing his 2016 total to 81,640 pages.
And he still has weeks left to add to that figure.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute, which tracks such activity, points out Obama has generated eight of the top 11 years for rules ever.
George W. Bush took 5th, in 2008, and 9th and 10th, in 2004 and 2002.
