WASHINGTON, D.C. – Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement commending President Donald Trump for issuing the Regulatory Relief to Support Economic Recovery Executive Order that will aggressively cut red tape so that our economy can quickly recover from the economic crisis caused by coronavirus.
“President Trump recognizes the economic burden excessive regulation places on job growth,” said David McIntosh, President of Club for Growth. “Already, the Trump Administration has taken massive deregulatory actions to create the Trump economic boom. Identifying regulations to suspend, making some suspended regulations permanent, and preventing federal over-enforcement to allow good-faith compliance are all cornerstones of the Club for Growth’s proposal to cut red tape, and we thank President Trump for making them the centerpiece of his Executive Order.”
