On July 16, more than 200 state, local and tribal officials from around the country joined President Donald Trump on the White House South Lawn as he reviewed the administration’s ongoing efforts to reduce burdensome federal regulations designed to create support for his re-election.
Trump highlighted the regulatory actions taken to expedite infrastructure projects at an event entitled "Rollback of Regulations Helping All Americans." Many of the environmental protection standards implemented by the previous administration have been rolled back by the current administration.
Engineers attending from Ohio included CEAO Executive Director Dean Ringle, Champaign County Engineer Stephen McCall and Delaware County Engineer Chris Bauserman, who were invited as part of a delegation with seven other local transportation officials from the National Association of County Engineers (NACE). Vice President Mike Pence, Idaho Governor Bradley Little and Alaska Governor Michael Dunleavy also addressed the group.
