Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) voted today for the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act to reduce unaccountable, unnecessary red tape that hinders economic growth and job creation. The REINS Act gives Congress an up or down vote on any major new federal regulation with an economic impact of $100 million or more.
“Out of control regulations handed down by unelected bureaucrats are holding back economic growth and making life more expensive for Michigan families and small businesses,” said Walberg. “This type of unchecked rulemaking that ignores real world impacts has gone on for too long. The REINS Act will bring more accountability to the regulatory process and help ensure the people have a say before more costly red tape is thrown their way.”
