Senator Borgeas' Statement on Regulation Rollback Executive Orders

Washington, D.C. – Earlier today California State Senator Andreas Borgeas (R-Fresno) met with President Donald Trump, state legislators, and business owners from across the nation at the White House. Senator Borgeas was invited to discuss and witness the signing of two executive orders today intended to give small businesses an opportunity to succeed in the face of harmful back-door regulations and give input before regulations are finalized at the national level.

As was reported earlier today the order “Bringing Guidance out of the Darkness” requires federal agencies to post on one website all guidance, directives, memorandums, and notices of new regulations. The other order named “Transparency and Fairness” will protect Americans against secret or unlawful interpretations of regulations, or from unfair or unexpected penalties.

“Small businesses and agriculture are the backbone of our economy. As a representative of the Central Valley and Sierra foothills, I am honored to have the opportunity to discuss ways to foster economic growth, scale back on government overreach, and support small businesses and agriculture,” said Senator Borgeas.

“All too often, we see ‘one-size-fits-all’ regulations remain in place for decades without any change or current application,” Senator Borgeas added. “Giving individuals and businesses the ability to give input about their experience or circumstances is a step in the right direction and may help to foster better regulations.”

The impact of government overreach on California’s economic engine has been historically detrimental.
