Some of the most helpful policy responses to the coronavirus pandemic loosen rather than impose restrictions. Many of the regulations that are being scrapped to fight COVID-19 were #NeverNeeded in the first place.

Please join CEI for an online discussion about how deregulation offers a swift, effective response to both the current crisis and long-term economic recovery. Featured remarks will be delivered by Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia, who has been called a “visionary” for his work challenging unlawful regulations.

The Labor Department will play a central role in overseeing the new federal programs intended to help workers and their families respond to the coronavirus. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia will join CEI to discuss the regulatory landscape as we look ahead from COVID-19.
