Rothfus Proposes Regulation Amendment
Rep. Keith Rothfus (R-Allegheny) proposed an amendment that would push for greater transparency when government regulations lead to the loss of jobs in certain sectors.
Teamed up with Kentucky Congressman Andy Barr, the amendment would be added to the standing H.R. 2804, the Achieving Less Excess in Regulation and Requiring Transparency Act.
The amendment would require any federal agency head involved in establishing regulations that lead to job loss or wage cuts to certify that they were responsible for the negative results brought on by the regulations.
