A New Record Set for Regulations

by Andrew SzczesniakFebruary 2, 2016 8:00 AM

Oftentimes, when a two-term President is entering into the last year of his presidency, he can become a lame duck. His issues don’t get addressed by a congress whose members are worrying about their own re-election. Some begin doing victory laps for their last seven years. Some are dealing with scandals while others are just trying to ride it out without any more problems. Any thoughts of the current office holder being one of those went out the door in 2015.
