Corporate Congress Holds Budget ‘Vote-o-Rama’

Comment are off

H.R. 348, the “Responsibly And Professionally Invigorating Development (RAPID) Act of 2015,” which would make it easier for companies to acquire permit approvals without addressing critical environmental, health and safety concerns. This would increase the likelihood of future disasters like the BP spill;

H.R. 712, the “Sunshine for Regulatory Decrees and Settlements Act of 2015,” which would weaken the ability of citizens to prod federal regulatory agencies to follow the law; and

H.R. 1155, the “Searching for and Cutting Regulations that are Unnecessarily Burdensome (SCRUB) Act of 2015,” which would establish a new bureaucracy empowered to dismantle long-established public health and safety standards.
