Last week, President Trump signed an Executive Order intended to pave the way for regulation of speech on social media and reinterpreting a provision of law that protects websites from liability for third-party speech. The new executive order is the culmination of efforts by politicians and activists on both the right and the left to “rein in” powerful social media companies by regulating their content.
The Federalist cites CEI's 10kc report:
A new report from the libertarian Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) offers new insight into just how much unelected bureaucrats have adopted and embraced Article 1 powers of legislating in the administrative state.
The regulations being scrapped to fight COVID-19 were #NeverNeeded in the first place. Join CEI for an online discussion about how deregulation is a swift, effective response to both the current crisis and long-term economic recovery.
CEI experts Iain Murray and Ryan young will discuss which policy responses to the pandemic have been most effective and share how lawmakers and regulators can identify additional relief opportunities as outlined in “How to spot a #NeverNeeded regulation.”
They will address how the continued repeal of #NeverNeeded regulations can bolster our response to the current situation and prepare us for post-COVID recovery as well as future crises.
