USEPA Announces Sweeping Regulatory Reform
As part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA) implementation of President Donald Trump’s Executive Order, “Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda,” the USEPA Regulatory Reform Task Force is accepting public comments about USEPA regulations. Comments are to be submitted via the Federal Register. The notice includes a docket that all USEPA program offices will use to collect comments specific to their issues.
USEPA’s Regulatory Reform Task Force is simultaneously working with program offices to gather their recommendations for specific rules that should be considered for repeal, replacement, or modification.
USEPA regional offices, program offices, and other officials will report back by May 15, 2017. USEPA also launched a new webpage with information related to the regulatory reform efforts. The docket number for public input is EPA-HQ-OA-2017-0190.
