Trump administration sets record for lowest number of regulations

An undeniable success of the Trump administration has been a radical altering of the mindset of federal agencies when it comes to creating new regulations.  Trump’s executive order at the beginning of his term that stated for every one regulation created, two must be repealed has worked like a charm.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute issued its year-end report, which says that over the last two years, the fewest regulations in history have been created.

Washington Examiner:

“At year-end 2018, how is President Donald Trump’s regulatory reform project going?  Better than Obama, Bush II, and Clinton in terms of fewer regulations; but not as good as Trump’s own first year,” said the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

CEI regulations guru Clyde Wayne Crews Jr. said in a year-end report provided in advance to Secrets that Trump ended the year with 3,367 new regulations.  That is the lowest since records were first kept in the 1970s.

But Crews noted that Trump’s number of new regulations is lower.  The reason: the government requires a “regulation” to kill a regulation, and Trump is continuing on his promise to kill two regulations for every new one he proposes.
