President Trump’s March 13th executive order “Comprehensive Plan for Reorganizing the Executive Branch” (E.O. 13781) set in motion a process that could yield dramatic changes to how Article II agencies and departments are structured and the duties they carry out. At the same time, the Office of Management and Budget is pursuing parallel regulatory reform efforts that will hopefully complement this streamlining and downsizing effort.

Many of the changes the administration is considering will be possible to execute under the President’s direct authority, while others will require legislation to amend underlying statutes. Please join CEI’s Richard Morrison and our panelists for a forward-looking discussion about what a 21st Century executive branch can and should look like.
