Partners in Preserving Public Protections

 

The Coalition for Sensible Safeguards is a national alliance of more than 150 consumer, labor, scientific, research, faith, community, environmental, small business, good government, public health and public interest groups — representing millions of Americans. We are joined in the belief that our country’s system of regulatory safeguards should secure our quality of life, pave the way for a sound economy and benefit us all.

ISSUES WE'RE WORKING ON

  • REGULATORY ACCOUNTABILITY ACT

    The Regulatory Accountability Act of 2015 (H.R. 185) would cripple our process for issuing and enforcing rules that ensure we have clean air and water, safe food and consumer products, fair wages and safe workplaces, stable financial markets, state-of-the-art infrastructure, and so many other essential protections.

  • UNFUNDED MANDATES INFORMATION AND TRANSPARENCY ACT OF 2015

    The Unfunded Mandates and Information Transparency Act (H.R. 50) would allow companies and trade associations a “first look” at rules before they’re even announced to people like you and me.

    This special favor could allow corporate lobbyists to severely weaken or even kill crucial upgrades to our public protections. This bill would also expand industry’s ability to challenge agency rules and evidence in court.

  • SMALL BUSINESS REGULATORY FLEXIBILITY IMPROVEMENTS ACT OF 2015

    The Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act of 2015 (SBRFIA) expands the reach and scope of the Regulatory Flexibility Act and would increase unnecessary and lengthy regulatory delays, increase undue influence by regulated industries and encourage convoluted court challenges.

  • REINS ACT

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rep. Todd Young (R-IN) reintroduced the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act (S. 226 and H.R. 427) on Jan. 21, making this the fourth time the bill has been introduced in the House and Senate.

    If passed, the REINS Act would require congressional approval of all “major” rules (i.e., rules with an estimated annual economic impact of $100 million or more), potentially endangering the most important safeguards to our health, safety, environment, and economy.
