AGC-Backed Regulatory Reforms Pass House

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

On March 1, the House passed three AGC-backed regulatory reforms that will help eliminate regulations that are obsolete, ineffective, overly burdensome or duplicative. These reforms bills come on the heels of several others that passed the House in January with AGC support.

While these reforms advance in Congress, the president issued another executive order aimed at reducing the regulatory burden. The Executive Order on Enforcing the Regulatory Agenda establishes task forces within each federal agency whose mission is to evaluate existing regulations and make recommendations to the agency head regarding their repeal, replacement or modification. This order complements the president's previous order that requires agencies to eliminate two regulations for each new regulation it issues.
