Nebraska Farm Bureau Official Says REINS Act Positive For Agriculture

Nebraska Farm Bureau Official Says REINS Act Positive For Agriculture

The House has passed the REINS Act which requires Congressional approval of regulations expected to have an economic impact of more than $ 100 million.  Nebraska Farm Bureau National Affairs Coordinator Jordan Dux says the legislation is very beneficial for agriculture. He says it would stop out of control federal agencies from passing rules at a rapid pace with no consideration of possible consequences.

Dux says the REINS act gives more oversight authority to Congress before any rule can move forward.

He is hoping the Senate will be able to pass their own version of the legislation and get it conferenced with the House.
