Early on in the Trump administration, the White House proposed trimming away excess or unneeded regulation. It sought public input and claimed to have received 100,000 comments. Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, or PEER, a watchdog group tried to find out what happened to the comments. Apparently they went into the ether. PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch talked about the vanished public feedback on Federal Drive with Tom Temin.
