Biden’s Climate Agenda at a Glance

Barring any unexpected changes or legitimate legal challenges, it appears that former Vice President Joe Biden will be the 46th President of the United States. Since this appears to be the inevitable outcome, it is paramount that we turn our attention to those issues most salient to a Biden administration. Chief among these is the issue of climate change and clean energy.

Regulatory Action Center Review - November 11, 2020

After a brief hiatus for election week, we’re back with this week’s Regulatory Action Center (RAC) Review! RAC proudly keeps you up to date on what we’re up to and what we’re keeping our eyes on here in the swamp. We offer resources for you to get involved in the rulemaking process to hold unelected bureaucrats accountable and occasionally offer praise in the event they have a good impulse. We will also highlight the incredible work our activists have done to advance the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty, and the rule of law. For more ways to get involved and stay informed, check the links at the bottom of this post.

Biden's National Clean Electricity Standard is a Disaster for Renewable Energy

If you happen to peruse Joe Biden’s campaign website, you will find a laundry list of “Biden Plans” for everything from ending racism to reintroducing the failed Cash for Clunkers program for electric vehicles. Among these patently ridiculous proposals sits a seemingly innocuous promise to “establish a technology-neutral Energy Efficiency and Clean Electricity Standard (EECES) for utilities and grid operators.” But behind its sweet sounding title, creating a national EECES could prove to be a disaster for the energy sector.

Issue Brief: Overcriminalization in America

"Every year, throughout the United States, thousands of citizens are being abused by a growingly authoritarian federal government. The sheer volume of federal statutes and regulations that carry criminal penalties means that every American could be considered a criminal by federal authorities for one thing or another. Unfortunately, most people do not take the time to consider the issue of overcriminalization until they are at the receiving end of a federal subpoena. In order to combat this epidemic of overcriminalization, legislators, bureaucrats, and other decision makers must recognize the scope of this issue and begin by plucking the lowest hanging fruit to address it."

Colorado Ballot Initiative Allows Citizens to Vote for Lower Taxes

It isn’t very often that citizens are presented with the opportunity to lower their own taxes, but this November, the people of Colorado will have the chance to do just that. At the ballot box this year, Coloradans will be faced with Proposition 116, an initiative that would permanently lower both individual and corporate tax rates. Given the state’s relatively healthy financial state, it is positive to see legislators taking initiative to change the tax code to pass the benefits of alternative revenues on to the citizens in the form of tax cuts.

FreedomWorks is proud to announce that our bill of the month for October 2020 is the National Patient Identifier Repeal Act, S. 2538, introduced by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). The National Patient Identifier Repeal Act seeks to repeal a dangerous section of the law that could require the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to create a national patient ID system.

Regulatory Acceptance of Stablecoins Signals Big Changes on the Horizon

A major piece of guidance issued recently by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is already making waves in financial circles. This directive allows banks and federal savings associations to hold deposits as reserves for stablecoins that are backed one-to-one by a fiat currency. Although this order is very limited in scope, it represents a pivotal move towards an innovative regulatory framework and signals the future inclusion of commodity-backed stablecoins.
