House passes REINS Act: Obama threatens veto

Another great place for Republicans to draw a line in the sand.

The House passed the REINS Act to require Congressional approval of regulations having an economic impact of $100 million or more. The vote was 241-184.

The purpose of the bill is to make Congress vote on major regulations rather than just delegating responsibility to executive branch agencies in order to avoid blame for when things (inevitably) go wrong.

President Obama has indicated he will veto the bill.

One thought on “House passes REINS Act: Obama threatens veto”

  1. This is a great place to draw the line. Obama’s veto will show how he is more interested in imposing his agenda rather than the will of the people expressed through their representatives in Congress. The multitude of agencies, regulations, permits, studies etc. needed just to do business in the United States is starting to make Baksheesh look like a preferable system. At least personal bribes make their way into a productive economy.
