HUD Seeks Public Comment on Agency Review of Regulations

On May 15, a notice was published in the Federal Register indicating that HUD is reviewing its existing regulations to assess their compliance costs and reduce regulatory burden, as required by an executive order issued on January 30. The order directs that “for every one new regulation issued, at least two prior regulations be identified for elimination.” HUD is in the process of establishing a regulatory task force charged with identifying agency regulations that should be repealed, replaced or modified. As part of this review, HUD invites public comments to assist in identifying existing regulations that may be outdated, ineffective or excessively burdensome. Comments are due June 14, 2017.
