Deregulation Task Force
President Donald J. Trump rolled into his first year in office with huge claims about the ways he would be scaling back government involvement in Americans’ lives. But slashing regulations on businesses isn’t a wholesale way to ensure better lives for the American people.
Two months after the deadline set via President Trump’s Executive Order 13777 directing the departments of the federal government to create Regulatory Reform Task Forces, many agencies have still not made public the members comprising the new groups. So who will be deciding which regulations make the cut? Right now, we don’t know.
The President wants to see fewer federal regulations and has issued multiple Executive Orders to that effect. But the one-in-two-out approach may leave rules with important intentions on the chopping block.
