Description

In fiscal year 1976, the direct cost of federal government regulation of business hit an all time high. By 1978, the annual total federal regulatory cost will be approximately $3.8 billion, an 85% rise over the 1974 level. The most expensive sectors of federal regulatory activity are not focused on an individual industry, but are assigned to a broad category of social activities like the environment, energy, and consumer health and safety.
