Along with the lecture, we will show part of a presentation recorded at the Heritage Foundation featuring Neomi Rao, the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs for the Trump Administration. This office is mentioned in Lecture 9 and is being used under President Trump to eliminate thousands of job-killing federal regulations. This video shows the Trump Administration’s answer to the administrative state’s approach to make a rule for everything—part of the “swamp” we all want to drain.
