Congress begins “Midnight Regs” cleanup
“Manufacturers saw a number of ‘midnight regulations’ handed down in the final days of an administration notorious for adding duplicative and unnecessary regulations over the past eight years. Many of these regulations seriously impact the success and growth of manufacturers in the United States,” said NAM Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse. “This week, the House will take an important step toward peeling back some of these burdensome regulations and, in doing so, help manufacturers succeed in a very competitive business environment.”
A recent NAM study found manufacturers face 297,696 restrictions on their operations from federal regulations.
