HHS seeks to pull Trump-era 'tick­ing time­bom­b' rule that would've put 95% of FDA reg­u­la­tions on the chop­ping block

The HHS is propos­ing to with­draw a Trump-era fi­nal rule that would have sun­set thou­sands of FDA and oth­er pub­lic health agency rules based on how long they’ve been in place.

The de­ci­sion fol­lows the fil­ing of a law­suit last March, in which sev­er­al non­prof­its al­leged: “The out­go­ing ad­min­is­tra­tion plant­ed a tick­ing time­bomb set to go off in five years un­less the HHS, be­gin­ning right now, de­votes an enor­mous amount of re­sources to an un­prece­dent­ed and in­fea­si­ble task.”
