WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer called a bill passed by the House of Representatives today a key tool for regulatory reform in the 115th Congress and incoming Trump Administration. H.R. 26, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act of 2017, requires all major rules issued by an executive branch agency to be approved by Congress within 70 days before they can take effect. A major rule is one estimated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to impact the economy by $100 million or more, and had this law been in place during the last session of Congress, the Clean Power Plan and the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule would have been subject to this Congressional action.
