First 100 Days: Common Misperceptions About Undoing a Prior Administration’s Executive Actions - Crowell & Moring LLP
In the latest podcast for Crowell & Moring’s “First 100 Days” series, Dan Wolff, chair of the firm’s Administrative Law & Regulatory Practice, and Tom Lorenzen, partner in the firm’s Environment & Natural Resources Group and former assistant chief with the DOJ’s Environment & Natural Resources Division, sit down with Jim Flood, chair of Crowell & Moring’s Government Affairs Group to discuss the possibility of President-elect Trump’s administration repealing, replacing, or eliminating prior executive actions, regulatory actions, or other policies.
Common misperceptions that will be addressed in this 15 minute podcast:
- A new president can easily strike all the regulations he or she does not like on day one.
- Regulations promulgated pursuant to Executive Orders can be erased simply by revoking the Executive Order.
- Congress can simply eliminate regulations under the Congressional Review Act and the new administration can start on a blank slate.
- Regulations at various stages of finalization can easily be discarded.
