The Trump administration’s new regulatory czar has a distinctive past, but it is her future that could leave an indelible mark on the way you live and work for years to come.

Neomi Rao, a law professor and a former law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was confirmed by the U.S. Senate to run the agency that oversees government regulations, the Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA).

The 54-41 vote enables her to lead the White House efforts to reject or slow-walk new federal rules, while rescinding other regulations altogether.

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway called Rao “an excellent addition to a team that is already committed to the president’s agenda of deregulation.”

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee said in a statement that he looked forward to working with Professor Rao to “Reduce the burden of regulations – by our best estimates as high as $2 trillion dollars a year – that weigh on the American economy.”

Cutting regulation has been a major focus of the Trump administration including broad directives meant to speed up environmental reviews for high priority infrastructure projects and manufacturing.
