486,500 pages of the federal register have been filled with new regulations from the current Administration. Hundreds of these regulations are "major rules," rules that cost $100 million or more each year. These regulations are especially hard for America's small businesses, which don't always have access to the resources that larger companies have to stay in compliance. That's why today I joined my colleagues in voting for H.R. 427, The Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act. The bill would require a congressional vote before any "major rule" could go into effect, effectively preventing major rule-making without review by Congress.
