Executive Order 13783, published on March 28, 2017, states that it is in the national interest to promote clean and safe development of energy resources, while at the same time avoiding regulatory burdens that unnecessarily encumber energy production, constrain economic growth, and prevent job creation. Section 2 of the Order requires the head of each executive department and agency to review all of the agency's existing regulations, orders, guidance documents, policies, and any other similar agency actions that potentially burden the development or use of domestically produced energy resources, with particular attention to oil, natural gas, coal, and nuclear energy resources.

The Department of the Treasury, pursuant to Executive Order 13783, is undertaking a review of its regulatory, subregulatory, and other policy documents that could potentially burden the safe, efficient development of domestic energy resources. To assist in this effort, the Department invites members of the public to submit views or recommendations on those items, including regulations, forms, policies, orders, and related documents, the removal or modification of which could reduce burdens as outlined in the Executive Order. Comments should include specific references to form numbers, citations, or other identifiers and should include a description of the burden imposed and how it could best be addressed (e.g., through repeal, modification, streamlining efforts, regulatory flexibilities, etc.).

The Department advises that this notice and request for comments is issued for information and policy development purposes. Although the Department encourages responses to this notice, such comments do not bind the Department to take any further actions related to the submission.
