Trump Follows Through On Requests From Manufacturers

In the early days of President Trump’s term, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) presented policy makers with a list of regulations they wanted addressed or rewritten. Now, two years later, the administration has modified, delayed, or done away with 85% of those regulations to the great benefit on American manufacturers. 

An analysis from the left-leaning nonprofit consumer rights group Public Citizen, examined how various government agencies have responded to the 132 requests that the National Association of Manufacturers submitted to the Trump administration about two months into his presidency.

 

Public Citizen found just 71 of those requests seemed to actually line up with major government rules on which the Trump administration could take action. Of those, government agencies — such as the Environmental Protection Agency and Interior Department — moved to modify, delay or get rid of 60 of them during Trump's time in office. That's about 85 percent. 

NAM’s vice-president for energy and resources, Ross Eisenberg, stated that “there’s no denying that we’ve been effective advocates for our members and have had a great partner in the Trump administration.”
