The Biden Administration’s Fall 2023 Unified Agenda of Regulatory Actions

The Biden Administration recently released its Fall 2023 Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions (UA) detailing the rulemakings it plans to put forward within the next year. In a new insight, Director of Regulatory Policy Dan Goldbeck examines major trends across agencies and discusses what this report shows about the scope of the administrative state and the Biden Administration’s priorities.

Key points:

  • The administration plans to advance nearly 3,200 rulemakings within the next year or so.
  • In terms of the volume of regulatory measures, the trends detailed in this report largely mirror those from the Spring UA with major rulemakings coming at a historic pace and many of the same agencies remaining atop the leaderboard in terms of planned activity.
  • This report also provides a unique look at the nearly 40 potentially major rulemakings – among hundreds of others – that could be vulnerable to recission under the Congressional Review Act in 2025 if the political balance of power in the White House and in Congress aligns accordingly after next year’s election.
