H.R. 1155: SCRUB Act of 2015

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1155 in the House.

The SCRUB Act (H.R. 1155) would establish a commission to review existing federal regulations and identify those that should be repealed, with the goal of reducing the cost of regulations on the economy. The bill also would direct agencies to review all regulations within 10 years.

“My mission with the SCRUB Act is to require a full evaluation of all 175,000-plus pages of the Federal Register and identify outdated and ineffective regulations for removal,” explained Rep. Jason Smith (R-MO), who introduced the bill last February. “This streamlining will lessen regulatory burdens on small businesses and give them the freedom to innovate and grow.”
