Following the passage of the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, H.R. 26, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“We’re pleased to see regulatory reform be the focus of the first week of the new Congress. With the passage of the Midnight Rules Relief Act on Wednesday and the REINS Act today, the House is beginning the process of restoring Article I of the Constitution and reclaiming its legislative power. We look forward to seeing other legislation that would rein in the regulatory state, such as the Separation of Powers Restoration Act, come to the floor for a vote.”
“We hope that Majority Leader McConnell will take swift action on these bills after the new administration takes office.”
On Wednesday, FreedomWorks issued a key vote in support of the REINS Act and will count this vote our Congressional Scorecard for the current Congress. The scorecard is used to determine eligibility for the FreedomFighter Award, which recognizes Members of Congress who consistently vote to support economic freedom and individual liberty.
