The Trump administration continues its breakneck pace of regulatory reform to improve the U.S. economy. In the president’s latest order, he is asking the aggregates industry for regulations to address.
In addition to the “Two Out, One In” and Waters of the U.S. Rule reconsideration executive orders, on Feb. 24 the president signed the “Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda” order which requires federal agencies to streamline permitting and “lower the unnecessary regulatory reform burdens on the American people.” A key component of this order is collecting information from businesses and is outlined in the March 7 Federal Register notice.
NSSGA plans to provide comments to the administration on regulatory priorities for the industry including those promulgated by MSHA, EPA and OSHA, including WOTUS. We would like your input on which regulations the administration should target. Please provide NSSGA with information by contacting NSSGA’s Emily Coyner at firstname.lastname@example.org and Joseph Casper at email@example.com to add your thoughts to NSSGA’s official letter by March 22.
Companies can also comment individually online before the March 31 deadline. Visit www.regulations.gov, enter DOC–2017–0001 in the ‘‘Search’’ box, click the ‘‘Comment Now!’’ icon, complete the required fields and enter or attach comments. If you do comment separately, please provide a copy to NSSGA. The deadline for comments in March 31.
