In my previous post, I began my review of 10 key regulatory policy stories to watch out for as 2021 gets underway. In this piece, I wrap up that list and offer some closing thoughts.
The Trump administration has been a disaster for the U.S. regulatory system, and it would be a tragedy if we, as a nation, failed to learn from the experience. The Biden-Harris administration and progressives in Congress have the opportunity to help our nation recover from this ordeal by building a more just, people-centered regulatory system, as called for in CPR’s Policy for a Just America initiative.
The American public expects government leaders to work on their behalf to achieve a more sustainable future, build a more responsive government, and enforce essential public protections. Let’s hope we can look back on 2021 as the year when that work began in earnest.
