According to an analysis by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, 953 economically significant final rules were issued in the first three years of the Obama Administration compared to just 30 in the first three years of the Bush Administration – more than a thirty-fold increase. In fact, in 2009, the first year of President Obama’s Administration nearly as many economically significant final rules were issued (163) as were issued in the entire eight years of the Bush Administration (179).
Furthermore, economically significant rules affecting small business also increased substantially. During the first three years of the Bush Administration, 16 new rules of economic significance were issued compared to 257 in the first three years of the Obama Administration.
