House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: January 28, 2019 09:26 AM
From: Representative Kerry A. Benninghoff and Rep. Cris Dush, Rep. Matt Gabler, Rep. Daryl D. Metcalfe
To: All House members
Subject: Strengthening the Regulatory Review Act
Costly, intrusive and pointless regulations, sometimes decades old, are an often-cited impediment to economic growth and place unnecessary burdens on Pennsylvania’s citizens and taxpayers, farmers, local governments and small businesses.

In the near future, I will be introducing legislation to ensure greater checks-and-balances in our regulatory process, by giving the General Assembly the authority to initiate the repeal of any regulation currently in effect by concurrent resolution. Both the House and the Senate would need to approve the resolution, as well as the Governor.

Under current law, the General Assembly has the authority to block the implementation of a regulation before it takes effect. This legislation will simply extend this process to regulations that are already in effect.

Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as HB430
