Dear Senator:

On behalf of the undersigned organizations and our millions of members and supporters, we strongly urge you to oppose S. 21, the “Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act of 2017,” scheduled for markup on March 15, 2015, in the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. The REINS Act, which has never been subject of a hearing in the Senate, is an extraordinarily extreme measure that would effectively make it impossible to protect the public by shutting down the entire regulatory system.

Dear Senator:

On behalf of the undersigned organizations and our millions of members and supporters, we strongly urge you to oppose S. 34, the so-called Midnight Rules Relief Act of 2017. This bill is designed to make it easier to repeal public safeguards put in place by the Obama Administration. It would amend the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to enable Congress to repeal many regulations at once by packaging them in a single resolution that would get expedited consideration and require only a majority of votes for passage in the Senate.
