Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke County, is reintroducing a bill to reform how federal agencies regulate business and the environment.
The bill would require agencies follow the lowest cost rulemaking alternative available and give advance notice of proposed major rulemaking efforts to increase public input. It also seeks to boost judicial review of new regulations..
“America’s job creators are being buried under an avalanche of federal regulations … this this has a devastating impact on our national economy,” Goodlatte said. “If we are to grow our economy and get more Americans back to work, Washington must get out of the way. “
