President Trump continued his quest of broad regulatory reform, targeting in an Executive Order regulations that stifle job creation, impose unnecessary costs or are simply outdated or ineffective. So writes Overdrive magazine in a news article:
Trump directed all federal agencies, including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, to establish a team. This team evaluates existing regulations and makes recommendations about regulations that need “repeal, replacement or modification.” In addition, the order refers to the teams as Regulatory Reform Task Forces. Nearly all federal agencies must form a task force, made up of senior agency officials and others.
Also, Trump ordered federal agencies to appoint a “Regulatory Reform Officer” within 60 days.
The officer would head each agency’s regulatory task force.
“Each RRO shall oversee the implementation of regulatory reform initiatives and policies to ensure that agencies effectively carry out regulatory reforms,” Trump’s order states.
The regulatory task forces established by the order seek input from state and local governments. Also, they seek input from businesses, consumers, and trade associations.
According to Overdrive, the American Trucking Associations supports a “judicious” approach “in eliminating or reversing regulations.” Furthermore, periodically review regulations to ensure their relevancy deems useful.
