Boehner: No New Regulations for a Year?
Friday, July 16, 2010 at 3:14 pm
Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) is calling for a government moratorium on new regulations for one year, according to Talking Points Memo, with new regulations only coming if there is an “emergency.” I’ll just note that regulations are generally designed to prevent emergencies, rather than to respond to them, and that government agencies are currently in the process of writing regulations in accordance with the new health care and financial reform laws. Halting that work for a year would do nothing other than, well, halt that work for a year.
