REINS Act Adds Teeth to the Congressional Review Act

On Thursday, the House of Representatives passed the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, H.R. 26, by a vote of 237 to 187. This vote, which FreedomWorks will score on its 2017 Congressional Scorecard, marks the fourth consecutive Congress in which this legislation has passed the lower chamber.

Congress Should Use the REINS Act to Combat the Regulatory State

In the Broadway musical-turned-movie, 1776, John Adams ranted to the Second Continental Congress that it had stalled his proposals for independence from King George III and Great Britain. Delegates, even those who wanted a diplomatic solution to rather than war, blasted King George for running roughshod over the rights of colonists, restricting trade, and taxing them without representation in parliament.

The Case for Scott Pruitt to Lead the EPA

The mainstream media’s misrepresentation of Scott Pruitt as an unsophisticated crony of the powerful energy lobby couldn’t be farther from the truth. In nominating Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, President-elect Donald Trump has selected someone willing to defend the American people’s values, and the Senate should confirm him as soon as possible.

FreedomWorks Praises Adoption of the “Holman Rule” by the House of Representatives

FreedomWorks today praised the inclusion of the “Holman Rule” in the rules package that passed the House of Representatives Tuesday by a vote of 234 to 193. The provision, which is effective only for the first session of the 115th Congress, allows Members to introduce amendments to appropriations bills on the floor of the lower chamber to reduce the size of a federal agency’s workforce or adjust compensation for certain federal employees, who, according to a 2015 study by the Cato Institute, earn an average of 78 percent more than workers in the private sector.

The Case for Scott Pruitt to Serve as EPA Administrator

Last week, President-elect Trump tapped Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency. In the past, Pruitt has sued the EPA, so it’s understandable that a quick analysis of the situation has left many people wary of this cabinet pick. Nonetheless, a closer investigation reveals that Pruitt is one of Trump’s best cabinet picks yet.

New York Tries to Shut Down the New Economy to Protect Special Interests

Last Friday Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York signed a new bill seeking to crackdown on citizens offering their homes for short term rental through Airbnb. The law would impose fines of up to $7,500 simply for listing a rental on the popular site for travelers. Why would the state of New York pass this law attacking people seeking to earn some extra money to help afford living in one of the most expensive cities in the country? The answer lies with the hotel companies, one of whose CEOs openly celebrated that his company would be able to raise prices in the wake of this law suppressing his competition.

Coalition of States Fights Against Destructive New Overtime Regulations

This month, a coalition of 21 states suing the federal government asked for an emergency injunction to delay the implementation of the Obama administration’s new overtime regulations while the states fight the rules in court. These new regulations are an attack on small employers and job flexibility and need to be stopped. Many small businesses, which will be most harmed by these new regulations, are not even aware of the new compliance costs facing them starting December 1.

Obama on Course to Set a New Regulation Page Count Record in His Last Year

The Federal Register chronicles federal government’s rules, proposed rules, and public notices. It serves as a running tally of activity by the federal regulatory state. The record page count for the Federal Register is 81,405, set in 2010. In fact, six of the seven all time highest page counts have been recorded under the Obama administration. But the Obama administration is not done yet and in its last year it is on pace to set a new all-time record by the end of the year. This stands as a stark reminder of the massive expansion of the regulatory state under President Obama, an expansion which comes at the expense of the rights and freedoms of the American people.
