Great News — Next week the Republican-controlled House of Representatives will vote on the REINS Act!1
It is extremely encouraging that House Republicans have made this a top priority as they begin the new 115th Congress.
The Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act is the simplest, most powerful regulatory reform: make Congress VOTE on regulations BEFORE they can take effect. Legislators doing the legislating. The way the Constitution says it’s supposed to work. No wonder it came from a tea party activist at a town hall meeting and not some “expert” in Washington!2

After you send your letter to Congress, please forward this email to your friends or post our petition page on social media. We don’t have much time to act, so please do all you can to help get this critical legislation through the House with the strongest possible support to build momentum for the harder fight in the Senate.
We finally have a president who will sign the REINS Act. Now we need to get it on his desk.
Thanks for all you do.
President, American Commitment
