President Trump slashes regulations, creating $60 billion in savings: report


President Donald J. Trump working alongside Congress has reversed burdensome President Obama-era regulations – an action one organization projects will save taxpayers more than $60 billion.

The Washington Free Beacon has the story:

The American Action Forum, a center-right policy institute, released a report Tuesday documenting the most recent ways the administration and Congress have used the Congressional Review Act to repeal regulations.

The report found the recent repeal and delay of regulations could lead to $86 billion in net fiscal effects for taxpayers from deregulation.

“Congress has already passed 13 CRA resolutions, repealing more than $1.1 billion (annually) in past regulations from the Obama Administration,” the report, written by Sam Batkins, director of regulatory policy for AAF, said. “In addition, President Trump has formally delayed and signaled an intention to amend several other major rules. Combined, these actions could generate more than $18 billion in annual regulatory savings for businesses, investors, and consumers.”
