The Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act
This is a small business bill in name only. The proof is that the bill will end up delaying or blocking rules that don’t have any direct impact on small businesses, such as Wall Street reforms that affect only the mega banks. The last thing our country needs is another deregulation driven financial crash that ravages small banks and small businesses across the country.
The SBRFIA expands the reach and scope of the Regulatory Flexibility Act and would increase unnecessary and lengthy regulatory delays, increase undue influence by regulated industries and encourage convoluted court challenges. That's why CSS is urging members of Congress to oppose the bill. Read our letter to lawmakers.
The Unfunded Mandates Information and Transparency Act
This legislation is premised on the false notion that agencies are not properly accounting for regulatory costs. If passed, it would rob the American people of many critical upgrades to public health and safety standard -- especially those that ensure clean air and water, safe food and consumer products, safe workplaces, and a stable, prosperous economy.
Read our letter to members of Congress urging them to oppose the bill.
The Regulatory Accountability Act
The health and safety of American workers and families should be the top priority of federal agencies, but the Regulatory Accountability Act (RAA) would require them to put corporate profits first.
The bill threatens our nation’s environmental, public health, workplace safety, and consumer financial security protections by adding dozens of legal and procedural hurdles that would override popular laws like the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, the Food Safety Modernization Act, and the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
The Coalition for Sensible Safeguards strongly opposes the RAA and is urging members of Congress to vote against it. Read our letter to members, fact sheet, and latest press release opposing H.R. 185. Meanwhile the President's senior advisors have recommended that he veto the bill. #goawayRAA
