With the launch of Heritage’s new Executive Branch Relations team, you will now have a direct impact on the Trump administration.
Focused on educating, informing, and supporting conservatives in the executive branch, this new team will pave the way in building strong relationships with key agencies in order to push conservative policy priorities.
They will provide Heritage research, host events, and work to ensure that reforms actually get done–not simply discussed.
Here are their top five targeted departments to start:
- The Department of Health and Human Services, headed by Secretary Tom Price: We’ll show policymakers in HHS how to administer health care entitlement programs in a patient-centered, market-based way after Obamacare is gone; and how to reverse administrative actions that undermine life and religious liberty.
- The Department of Justice, headed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions: We’ll help focus the DOJ on restoring justice and the rule of law. This will mean reviewing and rescinding the transgender bathroom “guidance,” stopping the overuse of federal criminal statutes, and ending the use of “disparate impact” analyses to label free-market policies as racist.
- The State Department, headed by Secretary Rex Tillerson: We’ll encourage the State Department to rebuild America’s strained alliances, free America from the Iran deal, and make clear which international agreements constitute treaties requiring Senate advice and consent.
- The Environmental Protection Agency, headed by Secretary Scott Pruitt: We’ll be a source of guidance for the new EPA on getting rid of Renewable Fuel Standards and greenhouse gas regulations (and other obsolete or unwarranted programs) and encouraging effective, state-based environmental stewardship.
- The Department of Homeland Security, headed by Secretary John F. Kelly. We’ll share our plans for restoring a secure America after years of ignored and unenforced U.S. immigration law. We’ll provide guidance on securing the border and creating more cooperation between the federal government and the states.
