716 regulations under review by DoD
The Defense Department has 15 different regulations for the Freedom of Information Act. It has 21 assorted rules for privacy.
This is a small sample of why the White House ordered agencies in February to reduce and reform regulations with a goal of getting rid of two for every new one they write.
DoD is taking on this huge task of getting rid of regulations, some of which go back to its War Department days, by reviewing 716 rules, including 350 of which are acquisition related.
