Air office -- a reg-writing powerhouse -- strains as mandates grow and funding shrinks

U.S. EPA's Office of Air and Radiation is a regulatory workhorse that churns out more rules than all other EPA offices combined. OAR -- as the air office is known around the agency -- is also one of the government's reg-writing champs. It had six rules released from interagency review last month -- more than any other office. And EPA, overall, has more rules being reviewed at the moment by the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs than any other agency, 22. But the air office routinely blows deadlines that are set by law, drawing scowls from friends and foes alike.
