Confronting the Administrative State: De-Regulation in the Trump Administration
The Jacksonville Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society is pleased to welcome Charles M. Trippe, Jr. to discuss de-regulation in the Trump administration and the practical realities of confronting the administrative state. WHEN: Thursday, September 26, 2019 TIME: 12:00-1:00 p.m. LOCATION: Jacksonville Main Public Library Multipurpose Room 1 303 North Laura Street Jacksonville, Florida 32202 COST: $10.00 (with pre-registration). We are now more than 100 years into the era of the federal administrative state. The growth of the federal regulatory apparatus has been massive. The total pages in the Code of Federal Regulations has increased from 22,877 in 1960 to 185,434 today. The number of “full-time equivalent” employees of federal regulatory agencies has increased from some 57,000 in 1960 to 226,000 today, not including TSA. The budgets of federal regulatory agencies, in 2009 constant dollars, have increased from about 3 billion dollars in 1960 to well over 50 billion dollars today, again not including TSA. Deregulation has been a priority for President Donald Trump. He issued an Executive Order on January 30, 2017 that, among other things, required agency heads to identify two existing regulations to be repealed for every new regulation proposed by the agency, and further required that the incremental cost of all new agency regulations, including repealed regulations, be no greater than zero for the fiscal year. What is it like to work in a federal regulatory agency under President Trump? Is it realistic to expect that the long-term trend of expanding the size and reach of federal regulatory agencies can be reversed through measures like those required by his executive order? What is the effect of such deregulatory efforts on the agency and its personnel, as well as on the public they serve? Charlie Trippe served as Chief Counsel of the Federal Aviation Administration from July 10, 2017 to January 31, 2019. He served previously as General Counsel to Governor Rick Scott and as General Counsel-Litigation of CSX Transportation, Inc., as well as having been in private practice in Jacksonville and as a partner in a national law firm in New York. He is currently in private practice with Abel Bean Law in Jacksonville. Lunch will be provided. This event is open to members and non-members alike.
