Regulatory Accountability Act
The Hampton Roads Chamber signed onto a coalition letter urging the United States Senate to make the Regulatory Accountability Act an early priority for the 115th Congress

 

The Hampton Roads Chamber signed onto a coalition letter urging the United States Senate to make the Regulatory Accountability Act (RAA) an early priority for the 115th Congress. The Regulatory Accountability Act allows Congress and the public to reassert control over the federal regulatory bureaucracy by holding agencies more accountable for their decisions, and allowing for regulations that are better-tailored to achieve their purpose without unnecessary burdens on stakeholders. The RAA would also increase public participation early on in the rulemaking process, require on-the-record hearings for the most costly regulations, and instruct agencies to choose the least costly option to achieve congressional intent.
