Trump is already cutting government regulations at a historic pace. Yet in 2018, he is reportedly going to pick up speed and cut more than he already has. This is great news for the American people!
The Washington Examiner reports:
Regulation cuts to continue in 2018 at pace higher than Trump promised
The Trump administration’s torrid pace of cutting Obama-era regulations will continue into 2018 at a pace higher than President Trump promised on the campaign trail and in his executive order calling for two old rules to be killed for every new one proposed.
A new study of the administration’s plans said that the White House is on a pace to 3.4 regulations for every new one.
While that is down from the administration’s early 10-1 pace, it is a realistic sign that government agencies are finding an excess of rules and regulations that can be eliminated.
“Of the 579 actions listed in the Unified Agenda as deregulatory or regulatory, 448 are deregulatory, while 131 are regulatory,” according to a new analysis of the agenda by Dan Goldbeck, a research analyst for regulatory policy at the American Action Forum.
“If this plan is executed as written, that would put the administration at a ratio of 3.4 deregulatory actions for every regulatory action – well beyond the goal of two-for-one,” he wrote.
Keep it up, Mr. President!
