In the 113th Congress, U.S. Rep. Todd Young of Indiana introduced the REINS Act in the House about a month ago, and now, Senator Rand Paul has introduced it in the Senate, according to a press release Feb. 27.

The Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2013 would require Congress to approve every new major rule proposed by the Executive Branch before it can be enforced on the American People.

“The REINS Act effectively constrains the President’s authority by limiting the size and scope of rule-making permissions,” Sen. Paul said. “Once major rules are drafted, they must be approved by both chambers of Congress and only then can the rules go into effect.”

“It is important for Americans to know and understand how government regulations and laws come to be. The REINS Act will open the regulatory process to scrutiny and cut red tape at the same time,” he continued.
