'Dirty Thirty' Regs Targeted

House Government Reform National Economic Growth, Natural Resources and Regulatory Affairs Subcommittee Chairman David McIntosh, R-Ind., is taking nominations for a list of "Dirty Thirty" burdensome or unnecessary regulations, an aide said.

McIntosh is collecting information from members of Congress, constituents, think tanks and other groups, the aide said, but candidates already include OSHA workplace safety violence guidelines and proposed EPA smog and soot standards.

In the last Congress, critics said a "Dirty Dozen" list McIntosh publicized was exaggerated, but McIntosh said it was taken from Federal Register listings.
