WASHINGTON, D.C. – Two new regulations have been added to the Office of Advocacy’s Top 10 Rules for Review and Reform. The new rules replace those that agencies already have reviewed and reformed, and they round out the Regulatory Review and Reform (r3) initiative’s 2009 Top 10. The two new rules address federal government procurement requirements for small business and duplicative background checks for commercial truck drivers.
