Trump Ends The Decade Cutting Tons Of Regulations After Only Three Years In Office

This is great news for American jobs and business.

When it comes to cutting regulations, Trump has been just as successful as his record of appointing judges.

In just three years, Trump has rolled back almost 100 regulations put in place by his predecessors.

The Daily Caller reports:

Trump Ends Decade With A Bang, Nixing Nearly 100 Enviro Regulations During His First Three Years In Office

President Donald Trump nixed nearly 100 environmental regulations during his first three years in office, effectively rolling back much of his Democratic predecessor’s environmental legacy.

The president rolled back more than 90 environmental rules and regulations, The New York Times reported in December. The NYT relied on an analysis from Harvard Law School, Columbia Law School and other sources to keep tabs on Trump’s numbers during his time in office.

The NYT’s list includes regulations that are officially reversed and rollbacks still in progress.

Trump has fully eliminated 25 rules designed to rein in air pollution and emissions, as well as 19 that regulate energy producers’ ability to drill and extract oil and gas. Trump uses a “one-two punch,” according to Caitlin McCoy, a fellow at Harvard Law School who tracks such measures.

“First a delay rule to buy some time, and then a final substantive rule,” McCoy told The NYT.

When it comes to issuing regulations, Trump is doing just as well.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Trump issues fewest regulations in 44 years, third record low

The Trump administration, under orders to slash Obama-era regulations, has also issued the fewest new rules since the government began counting them in 1975.

For a third year, Trump’s administration has broken the record for issuing the fewest regulations and rules, a radical departure from the eight years of former President Barack Obama.

According to Clyde Wayne Crews, the regulation expert and policy vice president at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Federal Register published 2,964 final rules.

“This is the lowest count since records started being kept in the mid-1970s,” he said in a blog on the Forbes site.

This is what a pro-American economy presidency looks like.
