Trump’s first anti-regulation agenda wins favor with federal contractors
The Trump administration reported in July it was making significant headway in cutting back on federal regulations that hinder economic growth. In making the announcement, it said federal agencies have withdrawn or weakened 860 proposed regulations initially put forward at the end of the Obama administration, a move one industry insider called a significant initiative for government contractors.
“It’s slamming the brakes on regulation, and that’s exactly what they’ve tried to do,” said Alan Chvotkin, executive vice president and counsel at the Professional Services Council. “It’s very rare” for OIRA to even talk about a rollback of regulations, Chvotkin told Federal Drive with Tom Temin.
