Advocacy groups challenge Trump regulatory rollback order

Follow up to previous posting – Executive Order on Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs – via the National Resources Defense Council – “The order goes beyond the president’s authority under the Constitution, rewriting laws by personal fiat rather than through a constitutional process. It would require federal agencies to violate both their legal obligations to protect the public and the process the law requires them to follow in doing so. And it would put Americans at greater risk in our homes, on the job, and at school by freezing or delaying new rules to protect us from emerging threats and by subjecting existing protections to repeal. That’s why NRDC joined today with two other groups—Public Citizen, a consumer advocacy organization, and the Communications Workers of America—in filing a lawsuit seeking to block Trump’s unlawful decree. In our suit, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, our nation’s capital, we’ve asked that the administration be stopped from implementing and enforcing the order.”
