A fact sheet on how the “Regulatory Accountability Act,” (115th Congress, S. 951) would enable those who oppose agency rules to essentially shut down efforts to adopt important new health and safety standards. Rather than preventing harm to the public or holding those who cause that harm accountable, the bill would likely stop new rules protecting the safety of our food, clean up toxic chemicals in our drinking water, stop big polluters from contaminating our air, lakes and rivers, or keep toxic and dangerous toys from harming our kids.
