WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) today applauded the U.S. House of Representatives for passing Rep. Todd Young’s (R-IN) H.R. 427, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act. The REINS Act, introduced by Sen. Paul in the U.S. Senate earlier this year, would require any executive branch rule or regulation with an annual economic impact of $100 million or more to be voted on by Congress before being enacted.
“The House passage of the REINS Act today signals there is continued momentum and support for an accountable federal regulatory process. I commend Rep. Todd Young and the House of Representatives for taking this important step in making the regulatory state accountable to the American people. Additionally, I renew my commitment to work to get a vote on the REINS Act in the U.S. Senate,” Sen. Paul said.
