NYT: DOJ Memo Ushers in “Sweeping Limits” on Federal Enforcement Actions

ILR’s Harold Kim, in a New York Times story today on the Department of Justice’s recent memo dealing with enforcement policy, said that limited the Department’s use of “guidance documents” could rein in “overzealous enforcement.”

The memo instructs U.S. attorneys not to “convert agency guidance documents into binding rules.” This includes ending the use of guidance documents “as a basis for proving violations of applicable law.” The memo, writes the New York Times, fits into the broader administration goal of reducing “the burden and cost of federal rules and requirements.”
