President Trump’s latest executive order requires agencies to cut two existing regulations for each new one.
The move has been welcomed by NSSGA President and CEO, Michael W. Johnson, especially as it also mandates that the total cost of new regulations cannot increase this year.
“What this order does, first and foremost, is create order in the rulemaking process. Furthermore, the proposal to eliminate two rules for each new one will go a long way towards rolling back the regulatory overreach of the last eight years. This will be welcome relief for aggregates producers,” he said. “Making America great again starts, starts with making our infrastructure great again. Easing the regulatory burdens on aggregates operations allows our industry to produce the construction materials needed to improve our infrastructure, economy and communities.”
Trump has sad that he hopes to eliminate 75% of government regulations and has told agencies that the total cost of new regulations this year should be ‘no greater than zero’.
