New Executive Order Puts A Regulatory Watchdog In Each Federal Agency

President Donald Trump has signed an executive order to put regulatory watchdogs in each federal agency.

The order, titled "Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda," will require that all regulations be examined and evaluated to determine if they are actually necessary. The goal is to change and eliminate any overbearing regulations. The regulations will be examined by a task force created by the agency.

Previously, Trump signed an executive order that mandates the elimination of two regulations for every new regulation.
