US regulation at an all-time high
Regulations governing US business reached an all-time high in 2002, the
conservative Cato Institute said yesterday.

More than 75,600 pages were recorded in the official Federal Register in
the second year of President George Bush's administration, up from 69,591
pages in Bush's first year. The cost to consumers and businesses of
regulation in 2002 is estimated at $860bn.
