As the House begins consideration of numerous regulatory reform measures, William Kovacs, U.S. Chamber senior vice president of Environment, Technology and Regulatory Affairs, said:

“The U.S. Chamber is pleased that Congress is kicking off its session with a focus on reforming our country’s regulatory process, a process that hasn’t been working for the business community or American consumers. The work that will be done in the House  over the next several weeks  is a step in the right direction toward bringing greater accountability, transparency, and integrity to federal rulemakings. We look forward to working with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, and in both chambers of Congress, to get smart regulatory reform provisions signed into law by the president.”

On December  5, 2016 the U.S. Chamber led a coalition of 380 business associations and local chambers to urge Speaker Paul Ryan and House leaders to move quickly on the Regulatory Accountability Act (RAA) in the 115th Congress. We are pleased to see that request being fulfilled. The Chamber has been a champion of regulatory reform for years.
