Boehner: No New Regulations for a Year?
Last updated: July 31, 2020 | July 16, 2010 | Elisa Mueller
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.
