Republicans: 916 laws against women and their reproductive rights introduced in one quarter in 2011.

State Trends for 2011 on Abortion, Family Planning, Sex Education and Insurance
To date, legislators have introduced 916 measures related to reproductive health and rights in the 49 legislatures that have convened their regular sessions. (Louisiana’s legislature will not convene until late April.) By the end of March, seven states had enacted 15 new laws on these issues, including provisions that:
Much more at link.

All of these were introduced by repugs.

Are you saying that there were no regulations submitted by repugs in your little scenario?

It should be noted that every regulation must have its authority based upon existing statute law. If the regulation does not cite the specific statute law as its authority, then the regulation is not enforceable. The courts do not base their judgement on whether or not a regulation has been violated, it is based upon violating the law behind the regulation. Regulations cannot be manufactured Willy-nilly. They can only be created to support the intent of Congress in implementing a law.

I quickly clicked on the link, it looks like a lot of the regulations are renewals of old regulations, some of them are non controversial and mundane, like vision requirements for driving.

Unlike laws, regulations have a life-expectancy between three and five years. In most cases the regulation does not change, but there is still a 90-day public comment period to determine whether or not the regulation should be changed. It is usually the people enforcing the regulation that have the most changes, if any. Regulations can be changed before they expire if they truly do not reflect the intent of Congress, but it is a major pain in the ass to accomplish.
