A Little-Known White House Office Could Have Big Impact on Dairy

May 09, 2017
Jonathan Gledhill, President of the Policy Navigation Group

The little-known White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is a big stop for all regulations in review and will play an important role this administration as President Trump seeks to relieve burdensome federal regulations. How can dairy professionals get involved with the office to ensure regulations don’t overly burden their companies? Former OMB staffer Jonathan Gledhill, now president of the Policy Navigation Group, will offer an inside perspective and advice during IDFA’s Regulatory RoundUP, June 12-13, in Washington, D.C.

Prior to founding Policy Navigation Group, Gledhill worked in the Natural Resources Branch of the OMB for over four years reviewing regulatory, policy and economic issues.

He was the primary analyst for all hazardous and solid waste regulations and policies for OMB. Other issue areas he covered included the Superfund, Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act, Safe Drinking Water Act, housing standards, and underground injection regulation. He was recognized and awarded for outstanding professional achievement each year of his employment at OMB.
