Smart Regulation Modernizing Regulation


The Trump Administration has taken important strides to modernize federal regulations and reduce costly federal red tape, but much work remains. Business Roundtable CEOs support policies that will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the federal regulatory system while protecting health, safety and environmental quality.


Leaders in the business and policy communities have grown increasingly concerned about the adverse economic impacts associated with excessive regulation in general and a burdensome permitting process in particular. The CEOs of Business Roundtable believe that it is time to simplify, streamline and accelerate America’s permitting process with the goal of encouraging large-scale capital investments in the U.S. economy while maintaining the nation’s commitments to health, safety and soundness.
