This line tells Squid to load a file full of regex patterns. Nothing more.
The http_access line is the list of rules that determines when those
loaded values are tested against a URL, and what happens when the URL
matches (or not) any of the patterns.

Have you read the docs on how Squid does access control?
The example config you showed indicates a lack of understanding the
syntax. That understanding is key to these things actually working the
way you want.
Lets look at your stated requirements:

acl okay_urls url_regex "/etc/squid/url.txt"

That sentence is an access policy. It has three parts:
1) "set of IPs"
I have assumed from the "can access" words that you mean client IPs.
Which in networking are the TCP src-IP value.
acl set_of_IPs src 192.0.2.1 192.0.2.45 192.0.2.156
2) "set of URLs"
acl set_of_urls url_regex "/etc/squid/url.txt"
3) "can access alone"
I assume that means you want these IPs to access the URLs. But no others
to be able to access those same URLs.
# permit set_of_ips
http_access allow set_of_ips set_of_urls
http_access deny set_of_urls

The most important word there is "previously".
This is where *you* understanding how Squid access controls fit together
matters *a lot*.
The first http_access line that matches entirely will _end_ processing
of the 'http_access' sequence. The action (allow/deny) specified on that
matched line will be done.
So where you place the above http_access lines determine which
transactions will be able to reach and be tested by them.
