President Trump on Friday signed another executive order aimed at reducing federal regulations, this time directing all government agencies to form a “regulatory reform task force” that will identify unneeded red tape and remove it.
In brief comments in the Oval Office, the president said each task force will report back to the White House “every once in a while” with their findings.
“Each task force will make recommendations to repeal or simplify existing regulations,” Mr. Trump said while surrounded by top U.S. business leaders. “The regulatory burden is, for the people behind me and for the great companies of this country, and for the small companies, an impossible situation.
We’re going to solve it very quickly.”
