Post by Freedom Partners

Arlington, VA — President Trump today signed an executive order to reverse Obama Administration efforts to cut-off natural resource development in the Arctic and address similar restrictions along the U.S. coast.

Freedom Partners Vice President of Policy Nathan Nascimento issued the following statement:

“America is an energy rich nation that for the past eight years has been handcuffed by harmful anti-energy policies. We applaud President Trump’s aggressive action to break down these barriers to growth and opportunity, and unleash America’s vast energy resources. President Trump and the Republican Congress should continue working to remove as many of these job-crushing regulations as possible.”

Under President Obama, over 600 major regulations were added to the Federal Register at costs exceeding $700 billion.
