Stand Up for Commonsense Regulations

Urge Congress to Oppose the Corporate Cronies

 

The big lie on Capitol Hill is that gutting regulations will save corporate America some money, and the money they save will be used to create jobs.

Now corporate lobbyists and their cronies in Congress are using the weak economy as an excuse to push their agenda.

Polluting energy industries are using it to fight environmental protections. Big banks are using it to fight consumer protections. Corporate agriculture is using it to thwart food safety protections. The list goes on and on.

They’re pushing bills like the so-called REINS ("Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny") Act (H.R. 10, S. 299), the Regulatory Accountability Act (H.R. 3010, S. 1606) and the Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act (H.R. 527) all which would hinder the ability of federal agencies to go about their work of protecting our environment, our health and our economy.

Tell your representative: Don’t listen to the corporate lies. Stand up for commonsense regulations that protect our environment, our health and our economy.
