Letter to U.S. Senate Urging Opposition to Regulatory Accountability Act (RAA), S.951

May 16, 2017

Today, fourteen (14) national environmental groups including the Natural Resources Defense Council sent a letter to members of the United States Senate urging them to oppose the extreme Regulatory Accountability Act (RAA) - S.951, more accurately described as the Risk to Americans Act. This bill would undermine the entire system of public protections that Americans rely on for clean air, potable water, safe food and workplaces as well as financial stability. The RAA would give special interests numerous tools to delay or more likely stop important protections through endless delay and litigation.
