Regulation Freedom Moving

The Wyoming House of Representatives by a bipartisan vote of 51-9 has passed the "Regulation Freedom Amendment" Resolution, HJ 1, co-sponsored by Rep. Nathan Winters and WY Senate Majority Leader Eli Bebout.

The Arizona Senate Federalism, Mandates, and Fiscal Responsibility Committee yesterday passed the Regulation Freedom Amendment Resolution, SCM 1005, sponsored by Sen. Nancy Barto.

These Resolutions urge Congress to propose the "Regulation Freedom Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution to require that Congress approve major new federal regulations.

In much the same way as states helped force Congress to propose the Bill of Rights, 2/3 of the states, if they agree on a specific Amendment could force Congress to propose that Amendment.

These Resolutions are an important first  step in that process.

The Indiana Legislature and the Georgia Senate have  passed similar Resolutions sponsored by Indiana Senate President David Long and Georgia Senate President David Shafer.

Two governors, more than 200 state legislators, and the 6 million member American Farm Bureau now support the Regulation Freedom Amendment.
