Today, another bit of insightful specialness from Representative Vicky Hartzler (r), via Twitter:

Rep. Vicky Hartzler ‏@RepHartzler

Could you comply with regulations that apply to you, or even find them? #RegulationNation [….] 9:13 AM – 7 Mar 2014

How dramatic.

A quick Twitter reply:

@RepHartzler deregulation has repeatedly been shown to harm public health and public natural resources. Stop being a shill for big business 9:20 AM – 7 Mar 2014

The “index” via the Government Printing Office:

Electronic Code of Federal Regulations

The Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (e-CFR) is a currently updated version of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). It is not an official legal edition of the CFR. The e-CFR is an editorial compilation of CFR material and Federal Register amendments produced by the National Archives and Records Administration’s Office of the Federal Register (OFR) and the Government Printing Office. The OFR updates the material in the e-CFR on a daily basis….

Yes, it’s easily searchable.

“Could you comply with regulations that apply to you…?”

Let’s put it this way, if you’re not at least peripherally aware of the Federal regulations (especially health and safety) in a line of work in which you’re supposed to have some expertise then you should probably be doing something else.
