Today, U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) voted for the Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, which would require Congress to approve any rule or regulation with an economic impact of $50 million or more, before it can be implemented. After the legislation passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 232-183, Rep. Gosar issued the following statement:
"The overreach and abuse committed by President Obama's Executive Branch, demands that Congress reassert itself as the people's voice and reclaim its legislative responsibilities from overzealous, job-crushing bureaucrats. Legislative responsibilities cannot and must not be ceded to unelected bureaucrats. I am proud to have co-sponsored and voted for this critical piece of legislation, which will help restore our system of checks and balances."
