President Donald Trump will issue an executive order creating task forces at federal agencies to identify regulations ripe for repeal.

Trump’s expected to sign the order at noon Friday, building on a previous order requiring federal agencies to repeal two regulations for every new one issued. Repealed regulations would have to be greater than or equal in cost to the new one imposed.

Trump’s regulatory task forces would have 90 days to report to agency heads which regulations should be repealed.



Trump’s order was well-received by Republicans who want to roll back the regulatory state, especially environmental regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of the Interior.

Liberal groups have not been as thrilled. Public Citizen, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Communications Workers of America said the order will “force agencies to take regulatory actions that harm the people of this nation.”
