Presidential review refers to the processes established by the president to assert more control over the rulemaking process. Through the establishment of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs and through executive orders which require OIRA to approve regulations before they are issued, the White House has asserted increasing degrees of authority over rulemakings, a process that in the past was delegated almost completely by Congress to the executive branch agencies.
