The bill instructs the President to create a committee entitled “The Committee for the Cumulative Analysis of Regulations that Impact Energy and Manufacturing in the United States”. The purpose of it is to study and measure how Federal Regulations, especially made by the EPA, have a deleterious impact on businesses and communities, and make recommendations for amending or repealing regulations that have adverse affects.

The vote was 249 Р169, with 19 Democrats voting with the Republican  majority, and four Republicans voting against the bill: Bass (NH-2), Biggert (IL-13), Dold (IL-10), and Hayworth (NY-19).
