Tools for Tracking Regulations

January 25, 2018

It's no surprise that President Trump's deregulatory push has both supporters and critics. Several groups have created tools for tracking the administration's progress as it moves to alter the regulatory landscape. Here are a few of those tools.

Regulatory Reform Agency Actions -- The U.S. Chamber of Commerce

The chamber has compiled a long list of actions from cabinet departments and independent agencies that contribute to the dergulatory agenda of the administration, including notices of information requests on ways to reduce regulatory burdens, delayed rules, proposals to rescind rules and more. The chamber's list, organized by agency, can be found here.

Brookings' Center on Regulation & Markets focuses squarely on rules that have been delayed, rescinded or nullified, offering "a selection of delayed, repealed, and new rules, notable guidance and policy revocations, and important court battles across eight major categories, including environmental, health, labor, and more." The tracker is here.
