The President is abusing his executive authority. He will not be the
last President to do so. We must permanently restore checks on
Our "Regulation Freedom Amendment strategy to mobilize states to force
Congress to require that Congress approve major new federal regulations
can unite conservatives and attract both independents and Democrats.
One key goal right now is to get as many as we can of the more than 4000
Republican state legislators, as well as Republican Governors,
Attorney Generals other statewide officials together with a few
courageous Members of Congress, virtually all of whom dislike what the
President is doing, to endorse and urge Congress to propose the
Regulation Freedom Amendment to end his power to dictate regulations
In some states we can also find Democratic legislators who don't want to be labeled "rubber stamps for federal regulators".
We have 150 legislators, 2 Governors, a former President of the NRA, a
former Chair of the National Federation of Republican Women, the Chair
of Americans for Tax Reform, the General Counsel of the RNC, the
National Taxpayers Union, and many others who support the Amendment.
That makes persuading legislators to support the Amendment easy. We can
send interested people a list of our endorsements.
With the increased attention and resources our growing list of
endorsements will generate, we can mobilize the "anti-Washington
regulator" majorities in 33 states and near majorities in 4 more to pass
resolutions and enact state laws that strengthen the states' power and
put pressure on Congress to end the President's power to dictate
regulations from Washington.
This strategy has a chance of focusing the debate on an issue that
unites us and where voters favor our position by 2-1 margins.
It could also deter regulators soon, as early as 2015, as the effort gains momentum, even before an Amendment is proposed.
The first steps for anyone who wants to help are:
1) to endorse the Amendment and
2) Whether they can endorse or not to forward an email to friends,
especially business and political leaders asking them to take a look at
3) Then we can ask people who have endorsed the Amendment to call or
email a state legislator or other elected official and ask them to
consider an endorsement.
Please pass this email on to help persuade your friends, business
leaders, political leaders and state legislators you know to endorse the
Regulation Freedom Amendment..
Here is the text of the Regulation Freedom Amendment:
"Whenever one quarter of the Members of the U.S. House or the U.S.
Senate transmit to the President their written declaration of opposition
to a proposed federal regulation, it shall require a majority vote of
the House and Senate to adopt that regulation."
