REINS Act aims at backdoor legislation by White House

Geoff Davis (R-KY) has introduced H.R. 10 in the House of Representatives and Rand Paul (R-KY) has introduced the legislation in the Senate as S. 299. The Regulations from teh Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act “REINS” in backdoor legislation through the use of unelected government officials.

The act would require a vote in Congress on any “major” regulations issued by the Executive Branch before it could be enforced on the American People.

FreedomWorks reports that, “Every year, the executive branch issues thousands of new rules and regulations. Those rules that impose at least $100 million of annual compliance cost are considered ‘Major Rules.’ In 2010, federal agencies issued 95 Major Rules. The REINS Act would respect the checks and balances carefully established in the Constitution by requiring Congress to approve such rules.”
