Washington, D.C. – Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) released the following statement on the memorandum of Ronald A. Klain, Assistant to President Joe Biden and Chief of Staff, ordering a freeze on non-essential regulatory activity pending review:

“As promised, President Biden and Vice President Harris are putting our health, safety, and environment first. Today’s action by the Biden Administration will finally end the reckless agenda that put corporate special interests ahead of the safety of our families and communities.
