Wednesday, 30 December 2020 (YJC) _ US President-elect’s press secretary-to-be said white house will Order to Stop ‘Midnight Regulations’ from Trump Admin on Inauguration Day.

WH to Issue Order Stopping ‘Midnight Regulations’ from Trump Admin on Inauguration DayUS President-elect Joe Biden's press secretary-to-be, Jen Psaki, said Wednesday that on January 20, Biden will issue a memorandum blocking outgoing US President Donald Trump from issuing so-called "midnight regulations" on Inauguration Day.

Psaki said that Biden would issue the directive in line with "standard practice" for incoming administrations.

Since the departure of former US President Jimmy Carter from the White House in January 1981, incoming presidents have issued such memoranda in order to prevent last-minute regulatory changes by outgoing administrations seeking to round out their political agendas. In addition, in 1996, Congress acquired its own ability to reverse decisions made by the outgoing president between Election Day an Inauguration Day, if the new president also disapproves of them.
