"Obama Announces Review of Government Regulations"
"President Barack Obama said on Tuesday he would order a government-wide review of regulations with the goal of eliminating those that hurt job creation and make the U.S. economy less competitive.
In an op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journal, Obama said some government regulations have placed 'unreasonable burdens on business -- burdens that have stifled innovation and have had a chilling effect on growth and jobs.'
He said he would require that in the future government agencies 'ensure that regulations protect our safety, health and environment while promoting economic growth.'"Source: Reuters, 01/18/2011
