REINSAct.com: Congress Must Do Its Job
“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 5/17: Today in a party-line vote, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted to approve the REINS Act! Let's keep the pressure on for a floor vote.
President-Elect Donald Trump wants the REINS Act on his desk to sign into law
Trump said: “I will sign the REINS Act should it reach my desk as President and more importantly I will work hard to get it passed. The monstrosity that is the Federal Government with its pages and pages of rules and regulations has been a disaster for the American economy and job growth. The REINS Act is one major step toward getting our government under control.”
It’s up to us to make sure this critical legislation reaches his desk!
The Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act 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 and Tell Congress: "Don't outsource your job to bureaucrats! Promise to VOTE on major economic policies by supporting the REINS Act!"
