Economically significant rules, as defined in Executive Order 12866, are those rules that will have an annual impact on the economy of $100 million or more or will have any material adverse affect on "the economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public health or safety, or State, local or tribal governments or communities." The definition of an economically significant rule is similar to but not identical to the definition of a major rule.
