VIDEO: How President Trump Is Changing the Federal Government

REORGANIZING GOVERNMENT: President Donald J. Trump’s reform and reorganization plan will make the Federal Government more responsive and accountable to the American people.

  • Last year, President Trump signed an Executive Order directing the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to work on a comprehensive plan to reorganize the Executive Branch.
  • After a year of planning how to make the Federal Government more efficient, effective, and accountable – which included input from stakeholders, agencies, and the public – key reform proposals were developed, such as:
    • Consolidating food safety functions into a single agency, addressing the current fragmented Federal oversight of food safety.
    • Merging the Departments of Education and Labor into a single Cabinet agency to better meet the needs of American workers and students.
    • Consolidating economic assistance resources to a new Bureau of Economic Growth within the Department of Commerce to increase economic growth nationwide.
  • This plan will serve as a cornerstone for a productive, bipartisan dialogue around making the Federal Government work for the 21st century.
  • Instead of a “one size fits all” approach to reform, the Trump Administration’s plan to reorganize the Government proposes solutions tailored to each agency’s mission.

MANDATE FOR CHANGE: President Trump recognizes that today’s Executive Branch is not equipped to meet Americans’ 21st century needs.

  • The President’s Management Agenda released in March 2018 provided context for what needs to change in Government, including a renewed focus on mission, service, and stewardship.
  • Today’s Federal Government lacks the organization and technology to provide the convenient and efficient services that Americans have come to expect in the 21st century. For example:
    • Job seekers have to navigate more than 40 workforce development programs across 15 Federal agencies.
    • Small businesses face overlapping, bureaucratic certification processes and complicated paperwork challenges when they try to work with the Government.
    • Poultry companies have to deal with multiple Government offices and loads of paperwork because chickens and eggs are regulated by different agencies.
  • Digitization is a must. Each year, the Federal Government creates millions of new paper documents that take too long to process and often must be physically stored.
  • Reorganization will help agencies maintain efficiency and effectiveness over time.

 MAKING AN IMPACT: President Trump’s reform efforts follow a number of actions already taken to improve and streamline the Federal Government.

  •  In May 2018, the President issued three Executive Orders aimed at reforming the civil service to work for the American people and making Federal operations more efficient.
  • President Trump signed legislation to bring more accountability to the Department of Veterans Affairs and provide our veterans with more choice in the care they receive.
  • The Administration has reduced the footprint of the Federal Government.
  • Agencies are repealing a historic number of regulations and streamlining requirements

Thank goodness for President Trump. Each day he is trying his best to save our country.
Too bad we cannot get the same achievements from our congress. Elect more conservatives!
Elect people who understand business and who are not just in government for themselves. They arrive in Congress with very little and end up millionaires….wonder how that happens??

Now if he would just eliminate TSA and Homeland Security and put agencies back where they came from Departments could do their job. He also needs to take a long look at government purchasing regulations they need serious cleansing and more common sense.

I have been saying this for what seem like for avery long time and that or government should be smaller and less complicated.
One department could be doing the same thing that several department has been doing for a very long time because they were started to cover a spacsific section of the business world and had their own set of regulations at their command and so a new business had to go to each department to get the proper permits from each department before they could open their doors and start doing business legally.
Mow they only have to go to one department and get their permit there, they have to go through the same or very similar hoops to get their permits but not have to travel all around the area to those different departments to obtain their permits.
