H. RES. 402
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
September 15, 2011
Mr. Yoder (for himself, Mr. McHenry, Mr. Quayle, Mr. Huelskamp, Mr. Fleming, Mr. Southerland, Mr. Price of Georgia, Mr. Rokita, Mr. Pompeo, and Mr. Labrador) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and in addition to the Committee on the Judiciary, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned
Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the Office of Management and Budget should direct all Federal agencies to postpone for one year the implementation of major rules.
Whereas job creation continues to be a top priority for Congress and the American people;
Whereas the economic recovery is, according to the
President and other executive branch officials,
Whereas estimates put the cost of overbearing and onerous Federal regulations at over $1 trillion per year;
Whereas, in a time of record deficits and debt, the Government’s responsibility is to alleviate these fiscal pressures on American families, not to exacerbate them; and
Whereas Congress and the Administration need to redouble their efforts to create simple, effective regulation with specific intent: Now, therefore, be it
That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the Office of Management and Budget should direct all Federal agencies to postpone for one year the implementation of major rules that restrict economic growth, except for those rules that provide for emergency services or the defense of the Nation.
