Key Senate Committee Hears Testimony on Measures to Cut Red Tape

Madison, WI – As the Senate Committee on Labor and Regulatory Reform meets to hear testimony on a slate of regulatory reform measures today, Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin called on lawmakers to pass Senate Bill 295 and Senate Bill 322/Assembly Bill 317. SB295 requires the re-adoption of regulations every seven years and provides for substantial legislative review over the re-adoption process. SB322/AB317 expedites the process to repeal unauthorized regulations and allows for increased scrutiny of new regulations. Eliminating job-killing government red tape has long been a top priority for AFP-WI’s base of over 130,000 activists.

Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin Deputy State Director Annette Olson made the following statement:

“With Governor Walker signing the REINS Act into law and common sense bills like these advancing in the legislature, 2017 is poised to be a banner year for regulatory reform in Wisconsin. Once again, the Badger State is leading the way as a model for the nation in cutting burdensome red tape. We thank Chairman Nass and Committee Members for their attention to this important legislation and urge all lawmakers to provide Wisconsinites relief from undue regulatory burdens by passing them swiftly.”
