Trump’s HHS plant­ed ‘tick­ing time­bomb’ to sun­set thou­sands of regs, law­suit says

Be­tween the time Pres­i­dent Joe Biden won the elec­tion and took of­fice, the out­go­ing Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion pro­posed and fi­nal­ized a rule that would in­dis­crim­i­nate­ly elim­i­nate thou­sands of HHS and FDA reg­u­la­tions if the agen­cies don’t take ac­tion, set­ting the new ad­min­is­tra­tion up for a time-con­sum­ing, reg­u­la­tion by reg­u­la­tion, re­ver­sal.

A new law­suit, though, is look­ing to over­turn the rule far more quick­ly.
