Trump’s First Act as President Is to Delay All New Regulations

Hours after being sworn in and after having blasted the Washington, D.C., establishment in his inaugural address for having enriched themselves at the expense of American workers, President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order banning federal agencies from issuing new regulations for 60 days.

It is expected that, in his first week in office, he will issue further executive orders undoing most if not all of Barack Obama’s executive actions. Congress is also working on an omnibus bill, based on the Congressional Review Act (CRA), to rescind all regulations issued since late May 2016. The CRA allows Congress, without a Senate filibuster, to rescind any regulation issued within 60 working days of its legislative session.
