AFP: Regulatory Reform Package Skates through House

May 1, 2018 by AFP

HARRISBURG, Pa. – Americans for Prosperity-Pennsylvania (AFP-PA) on Tuesday applauded the House for passing a package of regulatory reform bills, including the REINS Act, aimed at improving the state’s regulatory culture by eliminating or easing excessive regulations hindering Pennsylvania’s economy from unleashing its potential. The grassroots group now urges the Senate to swiftly approve the legislation.

“Pennsylvania can be a place where business comes to grow, thrive, and be part of our communities, but our state’s excessively burdensome regulatory culture puts that dream on ice. Regulations that impose burdensome taxes or excessive red tape limit opportunity and discourage commercial investment,” said AFP-PA State Director Beth Anne Mumford. “The Keystone State has so much promise, and the bills included in this regulatory reform package will help reduce burdens for businesses and ultimately the consumer. We urge the Senate to swiftly approve this legislation.”

AFP-PA has consistently supported regulatory reform to improve the state’s regulatory culture and has deployed an email and digital ad campaign urging activists to contact their lawmaker in support of the legislation.
