AFP-NC Praises Rep. Renee Ellmers and McIntyre for Supporting REINS Act

December 08, 2011J

Raleigh, NC – Americans for Prosperity (AFP) today praises Representative Renee Ellmers (R-NC-2) for joining 240 colleagues and passing the REINS Act:

“Rep. Ellmers has taken an important stand against regulatory abuse executive overreach. By passing the REINS Act, Ellmers and her colleagues are restoring constitutional balance and accountability to the federal regulatory policy,” said Phil Kerpen, Vice-President for Policy at Americans for Prosperity. “Hopefully North Carolina’s senators will follow suit and pass this bill when the U.S. Senate considers it.”

The House voted 241-184 last night to pass H.R. 10, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act (REINS) Act. Republicans unanimously supported the bill, which requires Congress to vote on economically significant regulations before they can take effect.
