The Agencies Cutting the Most Regulations
In July, the Trump administration reported it had withdrawn 457 agency rules proposed by its predecessors. A new report shows that is the highest total of revoked regulations in any half-year period in more than 20 years.
A group critical of President Trump’s efforts to deregulate issued the report detailing exactly where those revocations occurred. The Interior Department has withdrawn the most rules, totaling 113. Since 2000, the department’s previous high total of pulling back proposed regulations in any half year period occurred in 2000, when it withdrew 95. About 40 of the rule withdrawals came from the Fish and Wildlife Service.
