Congressman Andy Biggs Submits Two Amendments for the REINS Act
"I am pleased to have offered up two amendments to the REINS Act and to have defended the amendments in the Rules Committee," Biggs said. "Many small businesses and individuals in my district have been negatively affected by the ripple effect caused by an out-of-control rules-making process by unelected and unaccountable federal bureaucrats. I promised my constituents that I would strongly support the REINS Act, and I have kept my promise. I will continue to push for the passage of the REINS Act to ensure that Congress takes back this very important job of rule-making oversight."
Congressman Biggs offered the following two amendments to the REINS Act:
Amendment #4: Defines all rules promulgated by the Environmental Protection Agency as “major.”
Amendment #5: Lowers the annual economic effect threshold for a major rule from $100,000,000 to $50,000,000.
