Legislative Alert: The Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (the REINS Act), the Regulatory Accountability Act and the Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act (H.R.10) (H.R.3010) (H.R. 527)
[Excerpt] When the Congress returns from the Thanksgiving break the House is expected to vote on three "regulatory reform'* bills - H.R. 10, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (the REINS Act). H.R. 3010, the Regulatory Accountability Act and H.R. 527, the Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act. Each of these bills would up-end the entire regulatory system making it impossible for the government to protect workers and the public from workplace hazards, dirty air and water, unsafe drugs, tainted food and Wall Street abuses. The AFL-CIO strongly urges you to oppose each of these bills.
