WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tonight, the U.S. House of Representatives took a bold step toward regulatory reform in passing the REINS Act, or Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act, with a vote of 241-184.

“I applaud the House tonight in passing the REINS Act, championed by my fellow Kentuckian Rep. Geoff Davis. The onus is now on my colleagues in the Senate to concur, and vote for this common-sense legislation that will bring transparency and accountability back to Congress and out of the hands of the droves of unelected bureaucrats currently driving regulations unchecked,” Sen. Paul said. “As the sponsor of the REINS Act in the Senate, I will continue to work tirelessly to see its passage.”

Designed to “increase accountability for and transparency in the Federal regulatory process,” the REINS Act will result in better drafted and detailed legislation, an improved regulatory process, and will ultimately create a Legislative Branch accountable to the American people.
