Here is the list of 30 regulations and nine paperwork requirements targeted for review..
Agriculture Department: Regulations under the Packers and Stockyards Act regarding fair practices and competition in the marketing of livestock, meat and poultry. At issue is the extent to which market entry and operating efficiencies are hindered by regulations.
Army Corps of Engineers: Section 404 requirements for obtaining permits for discharging dredge and fill materials into U.S. waters. OMB said current problems include the time required to obtain a permit, overlapping agency responsibilities and lack of specific program objectives.
Water Conservation Memorandum, a 1978 presidential memo requiring muncipial and industrial users of water from federal projects to submit water conservation plans to the federal governemnt. A federal agency must review the plans every five years.
Commerce Department: Maritime Administration requirements that federally subsidized U.S.-flag ship operators must comply with, including prescribed trade routes, schedules and reporting.
Education Department: Interpretation of the federal government's policy on sex discrimination in athletics programs at schools and universities, under Title IX of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Regulations on administering federal education grant programs without discriminating against the handicapped (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973). OMB said concern had been expressed about the program's compliance and administrative costs.
Environmental Protection Agency: Regulations that lowered the maximum amount of lead that can be added to gasoline from 0.8 grams per gallon to 0.5 grams. OMB said this "lead phase-down" has imposed a "substantial energy penalty" because more crude oil is needed to produce this gasoline and has imposed "onerous capital requirements" on small refiners. OMB said EPA would consider providing quick relief to small refiners and beginning a rule-making procedure to consider relaxing or rescinding the rule.
Requirements under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TOSCA) that manufacturers must provide EPA with certain kinds of information when they want to introduce new chemicals.
Pesticide registration program (also under TOSCA) under which manufacturers must test and register pesticide products before they are sold.
Consolidated permit program, which, OMB said, has made permit procedures more cumbersome rather than streamlining them as it was supposed to.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission: Sexual harassment guidelines under Title IX regarding employers' responsibility for policing the sexual harassment of their employes.
Guidelines for employers to follow in their hiring practices, including a ban on tests that disproportionately exclude members of a race, sex or ethnic group. OMB said employers had also expressed concern about the regulations' record-keeping requirements.
Federal Emergency Management Agency: Federal Flood Insurance program, under which the government writes policies for buildings in flood-prone areas, providing the communities join the program and follow its regulations. OMB said the agency's construction standards have tended to be incorporated into building codes across the board, rather than applied only to buildings in flood plains.
General Services Administration: Executive Order 12072, requiring that federal facilities in urban areas be located in central cities whenever possible.
Health and Human Services Department: Health planning regulations under which local agencies must review proposed hospital construction and equipment purchases.
Overlapping regulations of the Work Incentive Program, which is designed to provide recipients of Aid to Families with Dependent Children with training and jobs.
Proposed Food and Drug Administration rules requiring that prescription drugs must include information on the drug's uses and side effects.
Housing and Urban Development Department: Community development block grant rules that OMB said may reduce local flexibility and impose excessive administrative and compliance costs.
Environmental requirements, under laws like the National Environmental Policy Act and the Historic Preservation Act, that restrict private and public construction and development.
Rules setting construction and safety standards for mobile homes.
Utility allowances for families in public housing.
Rules establishing lease and grievance procedures for residents of public housing.
Interior Department: Regulations under the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act that require wildlife resources to be considered when the federal government funds or approves projects affecting wetlands, streams and other bodies of water.
Endangered Species Act, which requires that agencies take steps to ensure that their actions don't jeopardize endangered or threatened species.
Labor Department: Occupational Safety and Health Administration safety standards for the commercial diving industry.
Office of Management and Budget: Federal policies under which agencies are encouraged to work with voluntary standard-setting groups in developing standards. The standards groups must meet federal record-keeping requirements that OMB said the smaller groups find difficult to meet.
Procedures (called A-95 reviews) under which state and local governments must get federal grant applications cleared by regional planning agencies.
Office of Personnel Management: Requirements that states adopt merit hiring practices spelled out by the federal government.
Transportation Department: Coast Guard standards for new construction that OMB said puts U.S. shipyards at a competitive disadvantage with foreign shipyards.
Federal Highway Administration design standards and guidelines for new construction on federally supported highways. PAPERWORK REQUIREMENTS
