Club for Growth issued the following statement in response to the announcement that President Trump will sign a second executive order cutting red tape to encourage economic recovery following the coronavirus.
“We thank President Trump for taking bold action with another Executive Order waiving the Endangered Species Act and the National Environmental Policy Act to get our country back to work faster instead of wasting time and money on unnecessary red tape,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “These reforms are supported by 74% of Americans and 64% of Democrats, and Club for Growth will continue working closely with the Trump Administration, Congress, business, and other organizations on further deregulatory steps to encourage growth.”
