The Federal Register, published weekdays, contains not only regulations that are adopted, but also requests for public comment on proposed regulations as well as notifications. They're indexed and organized by topic daily. https://www.federalregister.gov/blog/learn/user-information

To the OP: How many of the 80,000 pages are newly adopted regulations? Which ones are unreasonable and why? And if you want a reg rolled back or changed, how would you propose to do so if not via the notice-and-comment process utilized in the Federal Register? Would you prefer that regulations be issued without notice, and without first soliciting public comment?

There are more than 315 million Americans. Even if each of the 80,000 pages within the total 2013 Federal Register contained as many as 1,000 words per page, that's less than one word per American for the year. But without referring to substance, we can't conclude from per capita word-counting that last year's regs were probably benign, any more than we can look a picture of the volumes stacked up and conclude, "wow, big government sure is bad."
