Defeating Anti-Regulatory Legislation

Capitol B&WConservatives in Congress are working hard to undermine the standards and safeguards that protect American workers, consumers and families from harm.

Lawmakers have put forth a series of legislative proposals that would bury federal agencies under a host of new procedural and analytical requirements and paralyze their work. Other measures would upend fundamental principles of administrative law that form the basis of our system of public protections.

If even one these bills were to become law, our food, air, water, homes, workplaces and pocketbooks – not to mention our economy – would be in serious jeopardy.
