HUD Regulatory Burden Deadline Approaching
On May 15, 2017, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published a request for feedback on regulatory burden. This request is in response to Presidential Executive Orders 13771 and 13777. Specifically, Executive Order 13777 directs regulatory task forces to identify regulations that “are outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective” so they may be modified, repealed, or replaced. This overview from LeadingAge National provides an excellent summary of what HUD is looking for, why they have made this request, and how we may respond. We have been working with LeadingAge National to identify regulations and are viewing this as an opportunity to provide direct input and advocate for more efficient and sensible regulations for the programs that you work with on a daily basis.
To that end, LeadingAge sent a letter to HUD Secretary Ben Carson on May 18, 2017 outlining some of their concerns with budget cuts overall, and included a list of regulations that could be repealed or modified. I would love to get your feedback on the current LeadingAge proposals and get your thoughts and ideas about other regulations you believe could be modified or repealed, and why you would recommend your proposed changes.
