Donald Trump has nominated a prominent Indian-American law expert his regulatory czar to oversee the US President’s plan to eliminate 75 per cent of federal regulations.

Neomi Rao, who is currently a professor at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University, has been nominated to be the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), a statutory part of the Office
of Management and Budget within the Executive Office of the President.

OIRA reviews regulations from federal agencies and has the power to reject rules that do not fall in line with the President’s goals.

“Trump’s selection of Rao suggests the administration is serious about regulatory reform, not merely reducing high-profile regulatory burdens,” ‘The Washington Post’ reported.

Rao sounds like a very capable and level-headed pick for this office! As even the WashPost dort of admnits, picking her demonstrates that Trump intends careful reform rather than willy-nilly gutting.

[Scarcasm] On the other hand, Rao is a very bizarre pick for a racist-misogynist like Trump, If the MSM didn’t assure us otherwise, this might look like Trump isn’t a racist-misogynist. [Scarcasm]


Good pick I hope. That said not my approach.

Every Federal regulation from the last 15 years killed but you may reapply one at a time for reinstatement.


IMHO, EVERY law & regulation should have a sun-set clause, with at least 60% of either (both?) houses to continue after a 3 +/- year to see the results! And if renewed another sun-set timetable to evaluate.


YEP, sunset everything, not just laws but regulations AND AGENCIES! Like the EPA, HUD, ENERGY and what about the 17 secret gathering agencies we have, do we NEED 17 with black hole funding??? Who is watching the watchers? NSA out of control, CIA, out of control, FBI, BROKEN and CORRUPT!
