Data: Regulatory Prosecutions Reach a New Low

From TRAC:

The latest available data from the Justice Department show that during December 2014 the government reported 90 new government regulatory prosecutions, the lowest count for a single month in this program category since 1998. According to the case-by-case information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), this number is down 41.2 percent over the previous month.

When monthly 2014 prosecutions of this type are compared with those of the same period in the previous year, the number of filings was down (-14.3%). Prosecutions over the past year are still much lower than they were five years ago. Overall, the data show that prosecutions of this type are down 30.5 percent from levels reported in 2009.
