Coalition Letters Opposing Legislative Regulatory Attacks

March 14, 2017

Two letters from 70 environmental, faith, health, and Latino groups to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on their opposition to the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act and Midnight Rules Relief Act. REINS would make it practically impossible to put in place new safeguards by requiring any major rule to be approved by both houses of Congress within a limited time period. And the Midnight Rules Relief Act would let Congress repeal, in a single package, dozens of safeguards put in place over the past year.
