차기 회장 조 바이든 will issue an executive order haltingmidnight regulationson day one of his presidency, 들어오는 백악관 press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday.

We’re announcing today that, like other incoming administrations have done before, the Biden-Harris White House will issue a memo to take effect on the afternoon Eastern Time on January 20 that will halt or delay midnight regulations, actions taken by the Trump administration that will not have taken effect by Inauguration Day,” Psaki told reporters.
