Trump Repeals Key Obama Regulations in Four New Bills
President Trump has signed four new bills to repeal regulations put into place by the Obama administration on education, the usage of federal land, and more.
The bills were made possible through the Congressional Review Act (CRA), which allows Congress to repeal a regulation within a 60-day window.
We will be working with the American people until we eliminate every harmful and job-killing regulation that we can find. We have a lot more coming.” – President Trump
Trump described many of the repealed regulations as “power grabs” on part of the Obama administration. These bills will restore that power back with smaller state and local governments.
Trump on the repeal of two Education Department regulations, House Joint Resolution 57 and 58:
will eliminate harmful burdens on state and local taxes on school systems that could have cost schools hundreds of millions of dollars.”
