CR letter to Senate HSGAC in opposition to REINS Act

Description: CR letter to Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, in opposition to S. 92, the so-called Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act. or REINS Act. This bill would severely hamper the ability of federal regulators to protect our citizens and our economy, by automatically nullifying any new regulation unless both Houses of Congress act to formally approve it within 70 legislative days. That is, each House would have “silent veto”  power, just by doing nothing.
