In order to meet the Trump Administration’s goal of “eliminating regulations that bloat government and kill jobs,” the EPA is hosting a stakeholder meeting today giving people the opportunity to discuss environmental regulations that they feel are over burdensome or not needed.
See the information below from EPA:
Thank you for your interest in the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization’s (OSDBU) April 20, 2017 webinar in implementing EO 13777: Enforcing the Regulatory Agenda. The purpose of the meeting is to hear from you, our external stakeholders, which rules and regulations you believe should be repealed, replaced, or modified, consistent with applicable law. This information will assist OSDBU in making informed recommendations to the Agency’s Regulatory Reform Task Force and will further assist the Agency as it evaluates existing regulations and identifies those that should be repealed, replaced or modified.
The webinar will take place on Thursday, April 20, 2017 from 12:30pm until 3:30pm. A link to register has already been sent to you by Paula Hoag or in some cases, will be sent to you by Paula later this afternoon.
