MEDIA ADVISORY: Public Citizen to Testify Before Congress on How Regulations Protect Americans

WHAT: Amit Narang, regulatory policy advocate for Public Citizen’s Congress Watch division, will speak at a hearing convened by the U.S. House Judiciary Executive Overreach Task Force.

In addition, he will point out ways in which our regulatory system can be strengthened by fixing excessive delays in the regulatory process and enhancing regulatory enforcement. Finally, he will rebut some of the more outlandish and inflammatory claims made by committee members and other panelists who oppose a strong system of public protections.

WHEN: 3 p.m. EDT, Tuesday, May 24

WHERE: Room 2141, Rayburn House Office Building, 45 Independence Ave. SW, Washington, D.C.
