Understanding the Trump Administration's 2-for-1 Regulatory Policy


April 13, 2017


Washington, DC (and webcast)

This program is sponsored by the Energy Committee of the D.C. Bar Environment, Energy and Natural Resources Section. Cosponsored by various DC Bar sections, ABA SEER, and the Environmental Law Institute.

On January 30, President Trump issued an Executive Order on Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs. Pursuant to that order, executive agencies must identify two regulations to be repealed for every new regulation proposed. Our panel discussed the implications of this executive order and other related orders and guidance on agencies and the rulemaking process, and provided perspectives on the outlook for future rulemaking.
