The Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act

In 2009, the nation’s federal regulatory agencies issued 3,503 rules and regulations, spanning the oversight of everything from energy-efficiency standards for clothes washers and pool heaters to SUV emissions and escalators. The total of these off-budget regulatory costs is a whopping $1.75 trillion. Congress must be held accountable for the regulations Americans face.
