Congressman Scott Taylor Supports the Regulatory Accountability Act
WASHINGTON D.C.- January 11, 2017— Today, Congressman Scott Taylor supported H.R. 5, the Regulatory Accountability Act, which would require federal agencies to abide by several new measures that would help to peel back years of executive and agency overreach. Under this legislation, courts would no longer be allowed to defer to an agency’s interpretation of law. It would also delay implementation of regulations and require hearings and advanced notice for those that have a large fiscal impact. Several other provisions provide for more transparency to the public.
Congressman Taylor had this to say about H.R. 5: “As the people’s representatives in Congress we must continue to chip away at un-elected and unaccountable bodies passing regulations that have the power of law. These changes are common-sense and offer the public and individuals much more say in the way their government is being run.”
