Lee praises President Trump’s ‘one in, two out” regulatory order

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Monday in response President Trump’s signing an executive order titled, Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs:

“President Trump’s ‘one in, two out’ regulatory order is exactly what the American economy and the American people need. Last year I introduced the Regulatory Budget Reform Act, which would have accomplished much of what this executive order does, and would make the policy permanent.”

“We have seen some of our largest trading partners and closest allies implement similar systems that have been successful in reducing red tape. I look forward to working with the president to implement this order and to make it permanent law.”
