Georgia joins 14-state coalition supporting Trump's '1-in, 2-out' executive order

By Mark Iandolo | Apr 24, 2017

ATLANTA (Legal Newsline) — Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr announced April 19 that his office joined a 14-state coalition supporting President Trump’s executive order aimed at reducing governmental regulation. The order mandates that for every regulation created by the government, two must be dropped.

“I commend President Trump for using his executive authority to conduct a review of agency rule-making and to examine the costs and the effects of regulations on state and local governments,” Carr said. “This action is critical because the long-term consequences of federal regulatory overreach are largely borne by the States and their citizens. We will continue to advocate for relief from burdensome over-regulation, and we appreciate President Trump’s leadership in addressing this issue.”

Joining Georgia in the coalition were Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming. The coalition filed the amicus brief in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
