AGC of America Responds Quickly to President Trump's Executive Actions
January 25, 2017
President Trump, like his predecessor, is quickly taking action to implement his agenda via executive order, presidential memoranda and other directives. During this time, contractors must remember that such presidential directives—generally—do not instantaneously change the law. Rather, they direct federal agencies to make changes in their policies and regulations. Changing those policies and regulations often compels federal regulatory agencies to engage in the notice and comment rulemaking process. That process takes time. And, as we saw with many Obama administration executive orders and their implementing regulations, they are subject to legal challenge.
In this document, AGC will help the contracting industry keep tabs on various Trump administration executive directives, how they may impact AGC-member businesses, and their progress through the regulatory process. (Source: AGC of America)
