Re-issue Executive Order Executive Order 12498
Executive Order 12498, issued under the Reagan
Administration, was developed to utilize the Unified Agenda as a basis for
screening regulations before agencies work on them. More specifically agencies
must develop an agenda of all regulations they are going to work on. Presently
there is no analytical review of these entries.
Executive Order 12498 directed OMB to review the
entries to determine if there was a compelling need, required by statute,
and if so, to insist that the least cost alternative be analyzed. The
Executive Order was rescinded by the Clinton Administration, allegedly
incorporated into the Clinton Executive Order, EO 12866, Regulatory
Planning and Review.
