The Bush administration rushed out a host of problematic regulations in its final months. Many of these "midnight" regulations actually represent deregulatory actions that weaken or eliminate safeguards protecting health, safety, the environment, and the public's general welfare. This report, produced by OMB Watch and the Center for American Progress, explores how those rules came to be and what the Obama administration and Congress may be able to do about them.
