U.S. Senate Must Act on Positive Reg Reform Legislation
Post by Freedom Partners
Arlington, VA — The House of Representatives today is considering the Regulatory Accountability Act of 2017 in its continuing effort to protect Americans from the severe regulatory damage that an overreaching, unchecked executive branch can inflict on the economy. Last week, the House approved two measures, the Midnight Rules Relief Act and the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, that will help ignite economic growth and reduce barriers to opportunity for all Americans.
Freedom Partners Vice President of Policy Andy Koenig issued the following statement:
Freedom Partners recently released a first-of-its-kind roadmap to repealing regulations on a broad range of issues, including energy, healthcare, finance and others. During its eight years in Washington, the Obama administration has issued more than 600 major rules and regulations costing more than $700 billion. Freedom Partners strongly supports efforts to undo President Obama’s harmful regulatory agenda and advance comprehensive regulatory reform measures through the Senate to be signed into law.
