NPR's Pam Fessler reports on the large number of federal regulations that the Clinton administration is issuing during its last days in office. Among the most controversial are: banning road building and logging in millions of acres of federally owned forests; restricting the sulfur content of diesel fuel; protecting the privacy of medical records; setting federal standards for organic foods; and holding employers liable for ergonomic injuries. President Clinton says the new regulations have been in the works for a long time, and they aren't last minute initiatives.
