NYT: Trump Admin Has Rolled Back 90 Regulations over Last 6 Weeks

HeadlineMar 06, 2017

The New York Times reports that over the last six weeks the Trump administration has rolled back more than 90 regulations in order to benefit Wall Street banks, gun sellers, coal, oil and gas companies and other corporations. The Times calls the rollback “one of the most significant shifts in regulatory policy in recent decades.” In many cases, the regulatory rollbacks have come after the direct requests of lobbyists or trade industry groups. Trump’s administration is expected to continue eliminating more regulations in the coming days and weeks, including rolling back rules that limit car pollution.
