Pallone Statement on Trump Executive Order on Regulation

January 30, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) provided the following statement on President Trump’s executive order requiring that for every new federal regulation implemented, two must be rescinded.

“President Trump’s sweeping executive order on immigration and refugees showed the devastating consequences of executive actions that are not properly planned or thought out. Clearly the Trump administration has not learned its lesson.

“Arbitrarily requiring the elimination of regulations without review on a case by case basis is a sloppy and ineffective way to govern. While it is possible for Democrats and Republicans to work together to find regulations that may be unnecessary, it is irresponsible for the Trump administration to call for the reduction of two possibly unrelated regulations when a new regulation is enacted. President Trump needs to stop blindly fulfilling campaign promises and start governing in the best interests of the Americans people.”
