With a notice from the Defense Department that it is selling $122 million of equipment to Great Britain, the 2010 Federal Register passed 30,000 pages.
After 103 working days, the total page count is 30,265. Assuming 250 working days in a year, this year’s Federal Register is on pace for 73,459 pages.
The average count during the Bush administration was 73,416 pages.
Like most of President Obama’s policies, this represents less than a one percent change from the Bush years.
