To maintain parallelism, we need to identify what the new rules "are" doing. That leaves us with C and E. E is in passive voice,
Hence, my choice is C.

First impression: The underline portion is not parallel with the rest of the statement.

b) same reason.

c) looks good.

d) same reason as b). "called for by new federal rules" is a modifier. We need a phrase in the form of "subject, verb" to make the because- and-because parallelism work.

e) a little wording. I'm unsure whether "federal rules" can do the calling.

I would pick c).
