White House Issues “Regulatory Freeze” - January 26, 2016
Submitted by admin on Thu, 01/26/2017 - 12:07pm
On January 20, the White House issued a memo ordering an immediate freeze on all pending federal regulations, pending review. For “regulations” published in the Federal Register but not yet in effect, it temporarily postpones the effective date for 60 days from the date of the memo. The memo also covers any agency statement of general applicability and future effect ‘that sets forth a policy on a statutory, regulatory or technical issue or an interpretation of a statutory or regulatory issue." While we have not seen a list of the HUD items subject to the freeze, HUD items (here) recently published in the Federal Register include notices related to the implementation of HOTMA, expansion of the Moving to Work program, a revised RAD program notice and the new lead paint standard for federally assisted housing.
