WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the Trump administration’s new executive order (EO) that urges agencies to spur increased investment in infrastructure through deregulation, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks Foundation President, commented:
“Regulatory reform was one of the hallmarks of the historic economic success America saw under the Trump presidency. Now, it has become a hallmark of the historic economic recovery we are seeing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are glad to see the administration is not taking its foot off the gas.
“In March of this year, almost 700 FreedomWorks activists submitted comments urging their government to make it easier to complete badly needed infrastructure projects and to lighten the regulatory burden. We applaud the administration for embodying that with their latest EO. Given the success that’s come out of slashing red tape, we hope this is only the beginning of the road to bringing our economy back to soaring heights.”
