The Trump Administration
has stopped over 800 regulations proposed under
former president Barack Obama
, according to a new White House report.
Reuters reported Thursday:
The White House said Thursday it had withdrawn or removed from active
consideration more than 800 proposed regulations that were never finalized
during the Obama administration as it works to shrink the federal
government's regulatory footprint.
In a report, the Trump administration said it had withdrawn 469 planned
regulatory actions that had been part of the Obama administration's regulatory
agenda published last fall. Officials also reconsidered 391 active regulatory
proceedings actions by reclassifying them as long-term or inactive "allowing
for further careful review," the White House said.
