Center Submits Comment Supporting the Repeal of Burdensome Trump-Era Regulation Which Would Have Diverted Resources From Critical Programs
On December 17, 2021, the Center for Reproductive Rights submitted a comment supporting the Department of Health and Human Services’ proposed rule repealing the Securing Updated Necessary Statutory Evaluations Timely (“SUNSET”) rule promulgated by the Trump administration. If allowed to take effect, the SUNSET rule would have required the agency to conduct a resource-intensive review of all regulations within 10 years of their promulgation in order to prevent their automatic expiration, resulting in the diversion of resources away from critical health care priorities. The Center’s comment highlighted serious procedural issues with the promulgation of the SUNSET rule and detailed the vast potential for harm caused by automatic expiration of the Department’s regulations.
