President Creates Regulatory Reform Task Forces, Aims to Cut Onerous Regulations
Last Friday, flanked by U.S. business representatives, President Trump signed an executive order requiring each federal regulatory agency to create, within 60 days, individual regulatory reform task forces to either repeal or simplify regulations that are burdensome and harmful to economic growth and job creation. President Trump stated during the order signing that, "Every regulation should have to pass a simple test: Does it make life better or safer for American workers or consumers? If the answer is no, we will be getting rid of it and getting rid of it quickly."
Specifically, the task forces for each agency will have 90 days to determine which regulations will either need to be corrected or eliminated. NRMCA has already identified the numerous regulations damaging to the ready mixed concrete industry and looks forward to working with each agency task force to see these regulations remedied.
