Neomi Rao: "Trump Nominates Regulatory Chief"

"President Trump appointed a new regulatory czar Friday.

Neomi Rao, an associate law professor at George Mason University, was nominated to run the White House’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA).

OIRA will play a central role in Trump’s regulatory reform agenda. This obscure agency, which is buried inside the White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB), reviews regulations from federal agencies and has the power to reject rules that do not fall in line with the president’s goals."
