WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Chamber Senior Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley issued the following statement today after President Trump signed an executive order aimed at rolling back job-killing regulations:

"To get the economy growing more rapidly, we need regulatory relief and reform. Business owners from all sectors and industries have acknowledged that red tape sows uncertainty and holds back investment and innovation. We appreciate that the Trump administration is tackling the regulatory state head on.

"The executive order signed today sends a strong signal that the president and his Cabinet want to accelerate economic growth and create more American jobs. We look forward to working with the federal agencies to help identify rules that harm the economy and threaten jobs."
