Ambassador Gray Testifies in Support of Regulatory Reform and Accountability

By March 12, 2014No Comments

Yesterday Boyden Gray testified in support of the Regulatory Accountability Act before the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee’s Subcommittee on Efficiency and Effectiveness of Federal Programs and the Federal Workforce. Ambassador Gray applauded the bill’s requirement of cost-benefit analysis for new federal regulations, including regulations by so-called independent agencies. He also praised the REINS Act, which would help control excessive delegation of legislative power to unelected bureaucrats, and the Federal Permitting Improvement Act, which would promote inter-agency coordination for energy development projects that depend on approvals from multiple agencies.

A video of the hearing is available here.

Ambassador Gray’s prepared statement is below.
