NACA has joined with the Coalition for Sensible Safeguards, an alliance of more than 70 consumer, small business, labor, scientific, research, good government, faith, community, health, environmental, and public interest groups to oppose three bills that the House is expected to vote on this week. Each bill is part of a three-pronged strategy to jeopardize public protections. H.R. 10, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (the REINS Act), H.R. 3010, the Regulatory Accountability Act, and H.R. 527, the Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act, would produce the same undesirable result: Each of these bills would make it virtually impossible for federal agencies to ensure that American families are protected from tainted food, unsafe drugs, predatory financial schemes, dirty air and water, and dangerous workplaces.
