"In order to create an environment that allows America to compete and win in the global economy, we must get the regulatory monkey off the back of our job-creators."
-Gov. Huntsman, 8/31/11
The current Administration has overseen an unprecedented expansion of regulatory regimes which are creating uncertainty, choking off investment and hindering our ability to compete in the 21st Century economy.
Governor Huntsman's regulatory reform consists of three objectives: (1) rolling back President Obama's health care overhaul and financial regulation reform, (2) reining in the Environmental Protection Agency's job-killing regulations, and (3) dramatically improving the cost-benefit analysis of future regulations and the discipline of federal regulatory agencies -- particularly independent agencies like the National Labor Relations Board -- which have avoided White House oversight for political reasons, not legal ones.
