Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) voted today for the Regulations from the Executive in Needs of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, which would give Congress an up or down vote on any major new executive branch rule or regulation. Major regulations are those that produce an annual economic impact of $100 million or more, spur major increases in costs for consumers, or have other significant adverse effects on jobs and the economy.

“Excessive regulations are stifling the growth, expansion, and innovation of small businesses in Michigan and across the country. Far too often Washington bureaucrats unilaterally implement these costly regulations while ignoring their significant impact on job creation. The REINS Act would help hold the administration accountable and reduce unnecessary red tape so we can grow jobs and a healthy economy,” said Walberg.

Congressman Walberg serves on the House Education and the Workforce Committee as Chair of the Workforce Protections Subcommittee. In addition, he serves on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. For more information on Walberg’s work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.
