NRCA Releases Statement Addressing President Trump’s Executive Order “Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs”

Capitol

This statement is attributable to: Dennis Conway, Chairman of the Board, NRCA

NRCA welcomes the administration’s focus on reducing regulatory burdens on entrepreneurs, our nation’s job creators. The roofing industry has endured a wide array of regulations issued by federal agencies in recent years, and NRCA members consistently indicate regulatory reform is one of their top priorities.

The Executive Order issued on Jan. 30 requires that each federal agency to identify two existing regulations that will be cut for every new rule proposed. For the remainder of fiscal year 2017, any additional regulations issued by the federal government must be completely offset by repealing existing rules. For fiscal year 2018 and beyond, the Executive Order establishes a reformed regulatory process for newly proposed regulations. It also contains exceptions for regulations related to the military, national security or foreign affairs and those related to agency organization, management, or personnel.

The Executive Order appears to be consistent with NRCA’s long-standing support for regulatory reform that ensures regulations achieve public policy goals without imposing unreasonable burdens on businesses. We look forward to reviewing more details on how this Executive Order will be implemented, and we encourage the administration to work closely with Congress to develop sound regulatory policies in a manner consistent with American law and values.
