CU letter to the U.S. Senate governmental affairs committee opposing S. 34, the Midnight Rules Relief Act, and S. 21, the REINS Act

Consumers Union, the policy and mobilization arm of Consumer Reports, writes regarding this week’s Committee business meeting.  We strongly oppose, as written, bills scheduled for markup that would severely undermine the ability of our government to protect the public from safety, health, and marketplace hazards.  We urge you to vote no on these two bills:  S. 34, the “Midnight Rules Relief Act of 2017,” and S. 21, the “Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act of 2017.”
