Thanks for the post--I have been wondering though how regulations would be counted under this. Would one look to "a regulation" as it was published in final form in the Federal Register? Rather than, say, relying on the section numbering that is assigned in the CFR? (So for example, would 37 CFR section 1.102 be considered "a regulation", or would each subsection a through e be considered "a regulation" as they address distinct issues, or would each of the amendments that have been made to 1.102 over the years be considered "a regulation"? The executive order doesn't specify, and it seems like some creative counting may result.
