Executive Office of the President

Establish a quick and easy way to change obsolete policies/regs

I'm not sure how easy it would be to do this, but I've seen many cases where certain policies/regs become obsolete with time and actually end up creating inefficiencies as we still have to deal with them. In many cases, even though those following the policy realize it may be ridiculous, they don't pursue changing the reg or policy because that process takes too long and requires too much effort.


I propose coming up with a pathway through which changes in regs and policies could be expedited or be made quicker/less costly if the change is primarily because the policy became obsolete with time. Government policies need to be allowed to evolve at the pace of the field that it regulates and the technologies pertaining to that field.
