Rogers Statement on the REINS Act

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, MI-08, issued the following statement after voting to pass the Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act.

"Regulations have been instrumental in ensuring the safety of employees and consumers, but oftentimes in recent years they have become far too overreaching and overly burdensome to the point where they stifle business investment and economic growth. The REINS Act puts the brakes on out-of-control federal regulations by requiring congressional approval for any federal regulation with an economic impact of $100 million or more. Appointed federal government officials should not be allowed to operate unchecked without proper oversight from elected officials on important issues that impact jobs creation."
