I oppose S. 191: A bill to codify and modify regulatory requirements of Federal agencies. because...The explanation for why we need this bill, contains an admission that Federal agencies don't follow instruction, not even from the President. (Please see my comments on H.R. 439) Congress is not understanding that entire agencies have to be shut down, because they have been infected with a labor-union-bureaucratic mentality, that teaches them to laugh at elected officials. (Their attitude towards you is: "we'll be here for the next thirty years or more; you could be out of office at the next election".)

Bill Summary

1/31/2013--Introduced.Regulatory Responsibility for our Economy Act of 2013 - Sets forth general requirements for the federal regulatory system, including the protection of public health, welfare, safety, and the environment, the promotion of predictability in the regulatory process, and the consideration of benefits and costs of regulations. Requires federal agencies to: (1) propose or adopt regulations only upon a reasoned determination that the benefits of such regulations justify their costs; (2) tailor regulations to impose the least burden on society and to maximize economic and other benefits; (3) involve the public and parties affected by regulations in the regulatory process; (4) develop regulatory actions that promote innovation, flexibility, and objectivity; and (5) consider methods to promote retrospective analysis of rules that may be outmoded, ineffective, insufficient, or excessively burdensome, and develop plans for reviewing on a periodic basis significant regulation actions (i.e., those having an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more or otherwise adversely affecting the economy). Provides for judicial review of any agency action required under this Act.
