U.S. Department of Transportation Announces Regulatory Reform Task Force and Officer

WASHINGTON - Today the U.S. Department of Transportation announced Deputy Secretary Jeffrey Rosen will serve as the Department’s Regulatory Reform Officer and Chairman of the Department’s Regulatory Reform Task Force (RRTF).  The RRTF was formed earlier this year in accordance with President Trump’s Executive Order 13777, which directs each agency to establish an RRTF to make recommendations to alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens. 

U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao has directed the RRTF to consider ways to accomplish DOT’s primary safety objectives in less burdensome ways and to further review “midnight rules” that were issued at the end of the last Administration.
