Biden's HHS to withdraw controversial Trump-era regulatory reform rule
Posted Oct 30, 2021 from healthcareitnews.com
The so-called SUNSET rule would have required the Department of Health and Human Services to review its regulations once a decade.
he U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a proposal this week to withdraw a final rule put forth by the Trump administration that would have required the agency to review its regulations once every ten years.
Members of the public have 60 days to submit comments on the proposal to withdraw the rule.
The Securing Updated and Necessary Statutory Evaluations Timely, or "SUNSET," rule had been scheduled to go into effect in March 2021 but was delayed following lawsuits.
"The SUNSET final rule, if implemented, would significantly alter the operations of HHS with considerable repercussions for a diverse array of stakeholders," said agency officials in a document published in the Federal Register on Friday.
