Obama Halts Bush's Pending Midnight Regs

Following Bush's own example from 2001, Obama COS Rahm Emanuel has frozen all of Bush's pending midnight regulations. (Memo in .pdf form here)

As I reported in Bush's Final F.U. much of the damage is already done. But according to Pro-Publica, which has done a great job tracking the movement of these late rule-makings, the freeze should apply to about 40 rules.
