House Passes Regulatory Scrutiny Act

On December 7, 2011, the House passed HR 10, the Regulations From the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2011. The bill requires the Executive Department to submit major regulatory changes in writing to Congress, and allows Congress to give and up or down vote on the regulation in question.

Four Democrats, Barrow (GA-12), Boren (OK-2), McIntyre (NC-7), and Peterson (MN-7) joined all Republicans in the passage of the bill.
