REG REFORM - WAYNE CREWS & RYAN YOUNG
The Washington Times: Federal rules cost $10,000 per employee, Cut economy-strangling regulations
After President Obama issued executive orders in 2011 directing agencies to trim a small amount of regulatory fat, the Progressive Policy Institute’s Michael Mandel issued a report proposing a bipartisan Regulatory Improvement Commission to aid the process. It would be tasked with finding obsolete or harmful regulations worthy of repeal. It then would send its recommendations to Congress, which would vote on them as a package, up or down, without amendment.
It’s a good idea, with roots going back nearly 20 years. The first formal proposal for creating such a commission was Mr. Gramm's Commission on Regulatory Relief and Rollback legislation in 1995. > View the full commentary at Washingtontimes.com
