The White House, in a July 31 statement of administration policy, issued a veto threat against H.R. 367, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act of 2013. Introduced by Representative Todd Young (R-IN), the bill would require Congress to pass a joint resolution approving a regulation before any major executive branch rule could take effect. The White House said the bill would create uncertainty around existing regulations and would delay the implementation of necessary rules.
