Federal agencies posted 23 notices on Tuesday to the Federal Register of regulations they requested to have withdraw, according to The Hill.

Among the rules to be withdrawn from the Register are an Environmental Protection Agency rule that limits mercury discharges used by dentists, the Department of Energy's federal building efficiency standards, and Department of Health and Human Services guidelines on poverty, according to The Hill.

President Donald Trump's chief of staff Reince Priebus told federal agencies Friday to stop issuing regulations and to withdraw rules that had not yet been published in the Federal Register. An exception would be made for rules regarding emergency public health or safety situations, The Hill reported.

The moratorium does not include agencies Trump has less control over, such as the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

The Federal Register is set to publish nine final rules and five rule proposals Wednesday. Those include regulations about standards for mattress flammability testing as well as removing a requirement for installation of automatic emergency brakes, The Hill reported.

Trump addressed a campaign promise to cut regulations Monday.

"We're going to be cutting regulation massively," Trump said. "We think we can cut regulations by 75 percent, maybe more.”
