From air pollution standards to worker safety protections to food safety rules, regulations developed by federal agencies, under the laws set by Congress, go through one final step before they are implemented: They are reviewed by a small office in the White House, the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, or OIRA. That office is ostensibly focused on economic analysis, but too often is the site of political interference, where rules are delayed, weakened or even outright blocked, thanks to heavy pressure from regulated industries.

Executive Order 12,866, signed by President Clinton and reaffirmed by President Obama, directs OIRA to spend no more than 90 days reviewing a proposed or final rule drafted by an agency, with the possibility for a single 30-day extension. But many rules now at the White House have been at OIRA for longer than 90 or even 120 days.
