“All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”
– U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 1
UPDATE: Thanks to your support, ALL of the remaining GOP candidates for president have pledged to support the REINS Act. This is HUGE news for champions of limited government, but we can’t slow down now that the finish line is in sight!
The Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, HR427/S226, is simple legislation to end a longstanding dereliction of duty by our elected officials in Congress: passing broad, vague laws that turn the power to make the country's important policy decisions over to unelected bureaucrats.
The REINS Act would simply require that all economically significant regulations go through the constitutionally prescribed process for passing laws: approval by the House and Senate, and a presidential signature or veto override.
Sign the petition below to urge the Senate: "Don't outsource your job to bureaucrats! Promise to VOTE on major economic policies by supporting the REINS Act!"
