WASHINGTON, D.C.- Sen. Rand Paul this week introduced the REINS Act, or Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2013. The REINS Act, which passed in the House of Representatives in the previous Congress and was introduced by Sen. Paul in the Senate as well, would require Congress to approve every new major rule proposed by the Executive Branch before it can be enforced on the American People.

"The REINS Act effectively constrains the President's authority by limiting the size and scope of rule-making permissions," Sen. Paul said. "Once major rules are drafted, they must be approved by both chambers of Congress and only then can the rules go into effect."
"It is important for Americans to know and understand how government regulations and laws come to be. The REINS Act will open the regulatory process to scrutiny and cut red tape at the same time," he continued.
A companion version of the REINS Act was introduced in the House in January by Rep. Todd Young (R-Ind.).
