Will Americans choose democracy or bureaucracy? Major new federal regulations should be approved by Congress, not imposed by un-elected federal regulators.
The Regulation Freedom Amendment, endorsed by the Republican National Committee and Resolutions passed in 29 state legislative Chambers simply states:
“Whenever one quarter of the Members of the U.S. House or the U.S. Senate transmit to the President their written declaration of opposition to a proposed federal regulation, it shall require a majority vote of the House and Senate to adopt that regulation.”
Elections and the Regulation Freedom Amendment…
The Regulation Freedom Amendment sharpens the contrast between those who want un-elected Washington bureaucrats to keep their power to rule by regulatory decree, and those who are serious about preserving regulatory reforms, taking power away from bureaucrats and returning it to the people.
Only an Amendment can permanently curb the power of the administrative state.
A law, requiring that major new federal regulations be approved by Congress could be repealed. But an Amendment to the Constitution could not be repealed by a future pro-regulation majority in Congress.
The Regulation Freedom Amendment can stop the plans of those whose strategy is to rule and intimidate through regulatory edicts imposed by un-elected bureaucrats in Washington.
