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]
