We support this bill.

Dear Senator Paul and Representative Davis,

On behalf of more than 1.5 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, thank you for introducing the Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act – S. 299 and H.R. 10. The REINS Act would begin to restore Congress’s proper role in the construction of rules that govern the country by requiring executive agencies to submit major rulemaking proposals to Congress for review and a clear up-or-down vote before the rules take effect.
