Trump Just Trashed 800 of Obama’s Federal Regulations

Reuters calls it “the most far-reaching effort to pare back U.S. red tape in recent decades.”

He may not have drained the swamp, but President Trump sure is slashing some red tape.

The Trump administration has canceled more than 800 regulations that were proposed under former president Barack Obama's regime and is now getting rid of 16 rules for every new rule proffered.

In a new White House report, the Trump administration says it has “withdrawn 469 planned actions” that had been part of the Obama administration's regulatory agenda published last fall. Officials also reconsidered 391 active regulatory proceedings by reclassifying them as long-term or inactive “allowing for further careful review,” Reuters reports.

“The steps to eliminate regulations makes good on a much-repeated Trump campaign promise to promote business-friendly policies. Investors have anticipated the action, helping to push share prices higher on hopes that fewer regulations will boost business growth and lead to higher corporate profits.

“The Trump administration has identified nearly 300 regulations related to energy production and environmental protection it plans to rescind, review or delay across three agencies – the Environmental Protection Agency and the Interior and Energy Departments.”

Just a month into office, Trump enacted an executive order to install “regulatory reform” task forces inside federal agencies in what Reuters said “may be the most far-reaching effort to pare back U.S. red tape in recent decades.”

Among the changes are:

The Interior Department

“The Interior Department is reviewing an Obama-era rule that directed companies to reduce venting and flaring and methane leaks from oil and gas production on federal and tribal land, according to a White House semi-annual government-wide regulation report.”

The U.S. Transportation Department

“The U.S. Transportation Department said it would review a number of Obama administration proposals that were close to being finalized including making automobile event data recorders mandatory, requiring sounds for electric cars and updating some crash test dummy standards.”

The Energy Department

“The Energy Department listed dozens of energy efficiency standards for commercial and household appliances that it would review.”

The Agriculture Department

“Among the labeling requirements pushed back are Agriculture Department rules regarding production labeling on ‘natural' for meat and poultry as well as the bioengineering disclosure standard.”

  • I’m glad that President Trump trashed 0bamas disasters. Obama’s mission was to destroy America.He killed the coal industry knowing that was a our main source for electricity. His intention was to leave us in the dark with nothing. If he could have had electricity somehow that’s exactly what he would have done. No gas pumps would operate, so vehicles would become useless. No WATER could be pumped out.So as you can see , his mission would have been complete. We would start dying off like flies .. I believe everything I just said to be True. I saw thru him in 2008.His intentions was to destroy us. That’s all.

    • Trump’s mission is to destroy the land, water and air to make money for himself and all his big business friends. Oh btw, you are an idiot.

    • Absolutely amazing that you can so clearly “see” what never happened but are blind to the horrible damage Trump is doing with his attacks on the press (1st Amendment), intelligence agencies, the courts, the Constitution, women, the environment, science, facts, truth, to name just a few things.

  • You are right. Obama is a Muslim period. I have posted several times the names of the people , that belonged to the terrorist group Muslim Brother hood , that Obama had appointed to our countrys
