Trump provides regulatory relief to jumpstart economy and get America back to work

May 20, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising President Donald Trump for providing regulatory relief to small and large businesses to jumpstart the economic recovery needed after the COVID-19 pandemic:

“President Trump’s decision to provide regulatory relief to jumpstart the economy and get Americans back to work is the exact right step as America begins to reopen.  It is absurd to not provide the presumption of innocence to businesses trying to get back into the game when it comes to simple paperwork violations of regulations, and the President’s decision will allow small business owners, in particular, to focus on what needs to come first, getting back and operational.

“Also, expediting regulatory relief through the rulemaking process is essential to lift excessive burdens from those trying to restore our nation’s economy.  Let’s be clear, one of the primary reasons why the Obama/Biden recovery was hollow can be traced directly to that administration’s love affair with strangling job creators with red tape.  Rather than returning to that red flag mistake, President Trump is wisely allowing honest small business people with the leeway to succeed, while retaining laws which protect worker safety.

“Once again, we see that President Trump gets it, that economic growth doesn’t come from Washington D.C. or Albany, N.Y., but rather by the freedom to risk and succeed endemic in our free enterprise system.”
