Published: Jul 11, 2011

(WASHINGTON)—House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) today released the following statement regarding an executive order covering federal independent agency regulatory reform issued today:

“President Obama’s regulatory reform executive order issued today is a step in the right direction—it is constructive that he heeded the advice from many who said his regulatory initiatives must also apply to independent agencies.

“We must, however, do more than just examine rules and regulations—we must cut and fix where necessary and also solve problems that are identified in the rulemaking process in general. Doing this will have an immediate impact on job creators and will help put us on the path to real economic recovery.”
