Confronting the Administrative State: De-Regulation in the Trump Administration

Jacksonville Lawyers Chapter

Deregulation has been a priority for President Donald Trump. He issued an Executive Order on January 30, 2017 that, among other things, required agency heads to identify two existing regulations to be repealed for every new regulation proposed by the agency, and further required that the incremental cost of all new agency regulations, including repealed regulations, be no greater than zero for the fiscal year.

What is it like to work in a federal regulatory agency under President Trump? Is it realistic to expect that the long-term trend of expanding the size and reach of federal regulatory agencies can be reversed through measures like those required by his executive order? What is the effect of such deregulatory efforts on the agency and its personnel, as well as on the public they serve?

Charlie Trippe served as Chief Counsel of the Federal Aviation Administration from July 10, 2017 to January 31, 2019. He served previously as General Counsel to Governor Rick Scott and as General Counsel-Litigation of CSX Transportation, Inc., as well as having been in private practice in Jacksonville and as a partner in a national law firm in New York. He is currently in private practice with Abel Bean Law in Jacksonville.
