Conservatives push for bill checking regulations

October 30, 2013

A group of conservative organizations is asking the Senate to pass a bill that would give Congress new powers to check the flow of regulations.

The Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act allows for “meaningful congressional oversight” of major new rules, the leaders of 14 organizations wrote on Monday.

“The REINS Act offers Congress an opportunity to re-affirm beneficial agency rules, yet still reject rules which do more harm than good,” they wrote.

“The bill thus rebalances the power dynamic in Washington, giving it back to those who are accountable to the American people — at the expense of unelected bureaucrats. Our Constitution demands nothing less.”

The bill, which would require Congress to sign off on any regulation with an annual price tag of $100 million or more, passed the House in August, largely along party lines.
