FROM: Dominic J. Mancini, Acting Administrator, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs
SUBJECT: Guidance Implementing Executive Order 13771, Titled “Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs”
Q23. How does Executive Order 13771 apply to routine hunting and fishing regulatory actions?
- Routine hunting and fishing regulatory actions that establish annual harvest limits are not required to be offset, and are not eligible to be used as cost savings. This includes migratory bird hunting frameworks under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and fishery management plans and amendments under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. This exemption does not apply to regulatory actions that affect hunting and fishing activity that are not routine regulatory actions.
