As part of the Trump administration’s effort to promote and execute a regulatory reform agenda (executive order 13777), ABC member federal contractors who perform work for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (the Corps) are encouraged to submit comments to the Corps and Department of Defense (DoD) in response to their request for “input on its existing regulations that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement or modification.” 

According to a proposed rule in the Federal Register, DoD is encouraging the public to comment and provide evaluation of the Corps’ existing regulations by the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force's U.S. Army, Corps of Engineers Subgroup.  The deadline to submit comments is Oct. 18, 2017.

ABC members can submit comments at regulations.gov or email them to CorpsRegulatoryReview@usace.army.mil and include docket number COE-2017-0004 in the subject line of the message. 

If there are any issues you would like ABC National to include in our response to the Corps, or if you have any questions about how to respond to the Corps’ request for input, contact ABC National’s Manager of Labor and Employment Policy, Kelly Tyroler.
