Legislation, Regulations & Policies
The following laws, regulations, and policies have implications for federal, state, tribal, local, and territorial governments, as well as the general public.
Code of Federal RegulationsExternal
The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is the codification of general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by executive departments and agencies of the federal government. The CFR is divided into 50 titles that represent broad areas subject to federal regulation and each volume of the CFR is updated once each calendar year and is issued on a quarterly basis.
Published by the Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and Records Administration, the Federal Register is the official daily publication for rules, proposed rules, and notices of federal agencies and organizations, as well as executive orders and other presidential documents.
HHS Policies and RegulationsExternal
Many laws affect the work of HHS and, in turn, the work of CDC and its grantees. HHS issues regulations to implement laws and develop policies and guidance for state and local governments, industry, and other organizations.
Office of Management and BudgetExternal
As the implementation and enforcement arm of Presidential policy government-wide, the Office of Management and Budget performs its mission through five critical processes that are essential to the President’s ability to plan and implement priorities across the Executive Branch:
Budget development and execution, a significant government-wide process managed from the Executive Office of the President and a mechanism by which the President implements decisions, policies, priorities, and actions in all areas (e.g. economic recovery, health care, energy policy, national security)
Management and oversight of agency performance, federal procurement, financial management, and information/IT (including paperwork reduction, privacy, and security)
Coordination and review of all significant federal regulations by executive agencies to reflect Presidential priorities and to ensure that economic and other impacts are assessed as part of regulatory decision-making, along with review and assessment of information collection requests
Legislative clearance and coordination (review and clearance of all agency communications with Congress, including testimony and draft bills) to ensure consistency of agency legislative views and proposals with Presidential policy
Executive Orders and Presidential Memoranda to agency heads and officials, which are the mechanisms by which the President directs specific government-wide actions by Executive Branch officials
