‘1 in, 2 out’: Trump signs new executive order banning government agencies from making a new regulation – unless they 1st slash TWO existing ones

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump signed an order on Monday that will seek to dramatically pare back federal regulations by requiring agencies to cut two existing regulations for every new rule introduced.

“This will be the biggest such act that our country has ever seen. There will be regulation, there will be control, but it will be normalized control,” Trump said as he signed the order in the Oval Office, surrounded by a group of small business owners.

Trump’s latest executive action will prepare a process for the White House to set an annual cap on the cost of new regulations, a senior official told reporters ahead of the signing.

For the rest of fiscal 2017, the cap will require that the cost of any additional regulations be completely offset by undoing existing rules, the official said on customary condition of anonymity.

Trump, a businessman turned politician, campaigned on a promise to reduce federal regulations that he said burdened American businesses.

    A better order would ban the agency from enforcing a new regulation until it has been approved by Congress and signed by the POTUS.

  • Terry says:

    Amen to this! “And” the “right” gets to pick which two “they” are forced to choose from before all of “Their” voting public & held hostage for a change!

  • justinwachin says:

    President Trump once again shows what a great leader looks like. He places the responsibility on the agency to find regulations they can repeal. This will go a long way toward weeding out government regulations.

  • Rick D. says:

    That’s a major step forward in “draining the swamp”. Keep it up, Mr. T!!!

  • Rosemarie Saccardi says:

    I agree with you all all the crybabies are not crying for us they are crying for the line ups they have. They ALL NEED TO BE THROWN OUT.

  • Tiger says:

    I get so tickled when liberals try to sneak one over me and give the talking points of their group like Trump needs to slow down, he needs to OK his EO with Congress, he needs to explain every EO, which he has done since coming into office, they just want so bad for his followers to find some fault with him and they are so transparent. LOLOLOL

    Go Trump Push um back, Push um back, WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY Back.

      The left can’t, or won;t see that Trump is protecting ALL Americans. The left is fighting it. So, lets go back to when we were in grade school. All those that want to be safe, go to the left side of the room. Those that want to die, go to the right side!!

      1. Tiger says:

        Now we see they are again resisting Trump’s picks, they are stalling, keeping him without an administration. They are grilling Sessions on the Holocaust. These idiots comparing the Jews to the Muslims. The insanity and the emotional attempts at pulling the wool over eyes never ceases to amaze me. There is no comparison. Matter of fact not Muslims that are suffering a Genocide but Christians in the ME and the UN finally had to admit it.

        Or like in grade school beating crap out of the little sops at playtime. A swiftly and deftly kick ball to the head always worked.

    If truth were told they probably should be cutting 10 for every one they pass.
    The duplication and overlap is unreal in politics and even by removing one
    there will still be numerous ones that are so out of date and messed up
    that they effectively block each other. We have had judicial review of
    numerous laws that do exactly that yet no one has repealed any of them
    they just draft a new one this even more convoluted with legalese from
    dysfunctional lawyers elected to public office trying to justify why they are
    in office in the first place. we need to remove any and all lawyers from
    elected office and replace them with representative of the people and who
    will be responsible to the people who elect them. Not self serving
    professional criminals and malcontents who want to destroy our
    nation for their own profit and greed.

      BUT…. It is a start.

        Slowly but it works for sure.

  • CBUJAN says:

    California just recently passed new regulations on small businesses, they are already taxed to death. Watch more businesses leave California.

  • Jim Baum says:

    One of the biggest problems with our elected officials aka “Hired Help”. is that far too many of they think that being a “Public Servant”. Means that the public is their servant, and not the other way around. Which is the way it what suppose to be.

  • Webb says:

    Eight years of Rules and Regulations under Obama for business and in our lives…
    Now President Trump is Correcting Government Overreach…what a great idea for every new regulation Disolving two…
    Fullfilling His Promises…Refreshing!!

  • otoman says:

    UMMM, this regulation thing is way out of hand. Departments within the Federal govt. do NOT have the authority to make law through regulations. The intent of “regulations” is to interpret codified law passed by Congress. We are being led down a path of misunderstanding and acceptance of regulations describing alleged law that was never written and approved by Congress.

    1. CrustyOldGeezer says:

      The FIRST LAW he should FORCE congress to deal with is:
      Any ‘regulation’ is required to be LEGISLATED through BOTH houses AND Signed into LAW by the sitting President.
      And HAD BETTER INCLUDE dumping he whole concept of ‘administrative law judges’.
      That whole system ACTIVELY DENIES Citizens their DUE PROCESS, which includes FACING their accuser, NOT a ‘government regulatory agency’.
      The ‘administrative law judges’ are HIRED BY THE AGENCY and is not hired because they believe in fairness, just the political agenda being forced on the PEOPLE.

  • David Stewart says:

  • Nam1 says:

    Now maybe we can extend it to our congress and senate… For every newly elected one in each chamber, two older ones go.

    1. pappy450 says:

      THAT is an excellent idea! Schumer first! The damn crybaby!
      He is acting just like the “poor little snowflakes” that or on the news..
      He needs to “get over it” too and WORK with PRESIDENT TRUMP to MAGA! (but I doubt THAT will ever happen)

      1. Nam1 says:

        I share your doubt pappy.

        Great Idea…

      3. WhiteFalcon says:

        Add Pelosi to that also.

        1. pappy450 says:

          I believe anyone that contributed and was complacent to the FRAUD of the OSCUMBAG “presidency” FORCED on the people Of this Country should be held accountable and punished. That would probably clean out a LOT of the scumocrat side and many rinos besides. DRAIN THE SWAMP!

          1. WhiteFalcon says:

            It is definitely time to drain the swamp, but part of that is our responsibility. We must replace them by voting them out of office during the primary elections, and replacing them with real true conservatives. We also, of course, need term limits for all the Congress not to exceed total Congressional service not to exceed the time of two Senatorial terms, 12 years.

            Throw McCain to the lion’s den!

      All I can say is God Bless Trump! Can’t believe I said it, but that order is unbelievably a silver bullet in the gut of satan!

      1. Nam1 says:

        He’s sticking to his game plan, for once how refreshing.

      Same thing should apply to laws.
