Yesterday was the deadline for federal agencies to send the Office of Management and Budget a list of the federal advisory committees they’re proposing to do away with – the mandate to reduce committees came in an executive order President Trump signed earlier this year. Sean Moulton, senior policy analyst at the Project on Government Oversight, says the actions are a step backward. He joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin to discuss.
