On February 24, 2017, President Trump signed Executive Order 13777 entitled, “Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda” to alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens placed on the American people. The Executive Order established a Regulatory Reform Officer (RRO) for each agency and a Regulatory Reform Task Force. The RRO oversees "...the implementation of regulatory reform initiatives and policies to ensure that agencies effectively carry out regulatory reforms…”
E.O. 13777 establishes two main goals for Federal agencies in furtherance of alleviating unnecessary burdens placed on the American people:
Interior has established a Regulatory Reform Task Force, which is guiding implementation of regulatory reform to alleviate unnecessary burdens placed on the American people. A description of activities conducted to date was published in the Federal Register, and is available here.
Interior is seeking public input on how it can best meet the above goals and, specifically, where redundancies and inefficient processes can be eliminated, while ensuring that Interior continues to fulfill our legal obligations, resource stewardship, and Tribal trust responsibilities and minimizes the risk of lengthy and costly appeals and litigation.
If you have an idea to reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens placed on the American people as Interior fulfills its mission, please provide your input either by:
Periodically, Interior will review the written input to determine whether additional regulations should be targeted for review and considered for suspension, revision, or rescission.
