WASHINGTON (January 4, 2017) – The American Chemistry Council (ACC) today urged swift passage of the “Regulatory Accountability Act of 2017 (H.R. 5),” introduced yesterday by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.). The legislative package combines a series of regulatory reform initiatives reported out of the House Judiciary Committee and passed by the House of Representatives with bipartisan support during the 114th Congress.

“We applaud Chairman Goodlatte for his renewed effort to modernize federal rulemaking. The Regulatory Accountability Act is common-sense legislation that will lead to greater transparency and accountability in the rulemaking process. It will enable policymakers to make better-informed decisions as to how regulations will affect the economy and jobs.

“Regulatory reform is a longstanding priority for the business of chemistry, as our ability to innovate, hire and compete in a global market relies on having an effective and efficient regulatory system that does not create unreasonable burdens on industry. We urge House members to swiftly approve the bill when it comes to the floor.”
