Uncle Sam Wants You . . . To Help Improve Regulations!
In January 2011, the President directed all executive agencies to undertake an unprecedented governmentwide review of regulations on the books, in order to figure out what is working and what is not, and where appropriate, to streamline or eliminate ineffective, overly burdensome, and outdated rules. Over two dozen agencies responded with regulatory reform plans, listing more than 800 initiatives.
In a follow-up to its January 2011 initiative asking agencies to review their regulations, the White House is reaching out further—to individuals and businesses of all sizes across America— with one question: What federal regulations are causing you problems?
To participate, visit the White House webpage called “Advise the Advisor,” where you’ll find an electronic feedback form. For your input to be most effective, give specific problems with rules, don’t just complain generally. And if you have alternatives or suggestions, definitely include those.
