Government Shutdown and Deregulation

Susan Dudley

According to my George Washington University Regulatory Studies Center colleague, Bridget Dooling, a lengthy federal shutdown threatens to derail President Trump’s deregulatory priorities. Not only are covered agencies unable to make progress on their deregulatory initiatives, but the portals for public notice and comment and the office that must review all regulations before they can be issued are caught up in the furlough.
