Trump Signs Executive Order To Restrict Regulations

(Before It's News)

If you think EPA employees were in tears last week, just wait.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Monday morning requiring that for every new federal regulation implemented, two must be rescinded.

“This will be the biggest such act that our country has ever seen,” Trump declared moments before signing it inside the Oval Office. “There will be regulation, there will be control, but it will be a normalized control where you can open your business and expand your business very easily. And that’s what our country has been all about.”

The executive order signing, which fills a campaign pledge, comes after the president held a listening session with small-business leaders.

“If you have a regulation you want, number one, we’re not gonna approve it because it’s already been approved probably in 17 different forms,” Trump said. “But if we do, the only way you have a chance is we have to knock out two regulations for every new regulation. So if there’s a new regulation, they have to knock out two.”

I don’t know how this will work… can EPA pick a couple of Labor regulations to get rid of? Or do they have to get rid of EPA regulations?… and I have a sneaking suspicion no one in the White House knows either but it doesn’t really matter so long as it happens. In fact, it would be kind of amusing if agencies could offer up regulations from other agencies to be eliminated, sort of Survivor for bureaucrats.

The regulatory state has been strangling America for decades. This order not only subjects proposed rules to increased scrutiny, it would require agencies promulgating rules to go through the time consuming process of rescinding existing regulations before moving forward. At a minimum this is going to be good for a lot of entertainment.
