The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking public commentary for its Regulatory Reform Task Force as it reassesses existing regulations. Announced on April 13 in the Federal Register, the commentary period runs through May 15.
The announcement explains:
Through this notice, EPA is soliciting such input from the public to inform its Task Force’s evaluation of existing regulations. Although the agency will not respond to individual comments, the EPA values public feedback and will give careful consideration to all input that it receives. EPA will also be conducting outreach on this same topic.
A recent executive order called for the task force to evaluate existing regulations and recommend which should be repealed, replaced or modified.
