|To:||All Senate members|
|Subject:||Legislative Approval of Economically Significant Regulations|
|I will be reintroducing legislation to require the General Assembly to approve all regulations with an economic impact or cost to the Commonwealth, to its political subdivisions, and to the private sector exceeding $1 million.
Our current regulatory process vests too much power in unelected bureaucrats and agencies that lack direct accountability to the people. This legislation will help restore important constitutional checks and balances to protect against onerous regulations that hamper job creation and economic growth.
This legislation was previously SB 561 and passed the full Senate. Previous cosponsors were Scarnati, Corman, Aument, Eichelberger, Folmer, Hutchinson, Martin, Rafferty, Reschenthaler, Scavello, Stefano, Wagner, Ward, White, and Brooks.
Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation.
Introduced as SB5
