Today, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) cosponsored the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, which requires Congress to approve any "economically significant" regulation that would cost more than $100 million, lead to a major increase in consumer prices, or adversely affect employment. He also cosponsored this bill when it was introduced in the 112th Congress.
"As a believer in the principles of limited government embodied in the U.S. Constitution, I am concerned whenever the Executive Branch's actions infringe on the power of Congress and the rights of Americans," Sen. Moran said. "The REINS Act would increase accountability and help to make certain common sense policies are put in place that preserve our freedoms and foster an environment for economic growth."
