CU letter to the U.S. Senate governmental affairs committee on four “regulatory reform” bills

Consumers Union recognizes the importance of reducing delays and costs in the regulatory process, while also promoting and preserving important public protections. Regulations should be smart, clear, and reasonable. But the bills we address would not accomplish this goal. Instead, they would make the development and implementation of important federal rules more costly, more uncertain, and more prone to undue political interference. We therefore strongly urge you to vote no on S. 34, S. 951, S. 21, and S. 584.
