HR 361 [ADOPT] United States Congress; enactment of a Regulation Freedom Amendment to the Constitution of the United States; encourageVoted on Thursday March 9, 2017
John Pezold's thoughts
HR 361 encourages the enactment of a "Regulation Freedom Amendment" to the Constitution of the United States by the US Congress. The resolutions states the US has more than 300 independent and executive agencies that are staffed by unelected officials. These agencies issue thousands of rules and regulations each year that frequently involve everyday lives of people.
While federal rules and regulations can benefit the public, many are concerned the increasing amount of rules and regulations have slowed economic growth by increasing consumer and compliance costs and limiting job creation.
The Amendment ensures that regulatory agencies remain accountable to the people of the country through Congress.More information on legis.ga.gov
