Progress Check: President Trump’s Executive Orders on Regulation
Today the American Action Forum (@AAF) released a new infographic examining the progress of President Trump’s executive orders on regulation. President Trump signed a record 14 Congressional Review Act (CRA) “resolutions of disapproval” into law, repealing $3.7 billion worth of regulatory costs. His lodestar Executive Order (EO) 13,771, establishing a one-in, two-out framework for regulatory actions, has received the bulk of the attention. However, there are at least a half dozen other executive orders establishing administrative reforms within a specific timeframe that, to date, have seen only limited progress.
