DRIESSEN: The heavy price of regulations
Question of the Day
Congress, state legislatures and the judicial system must address this huge and growing problem, and not just with regard to the EPA, but all regulatory agencies. Requiring this comprehensive analysis for all regulations would be a valuable addition to the Reins Act, although our courts could already demand it under existing laws.
Business, family, health, welfare and other public interest organizations should nevertheless join concerned legislators in requiring this fundamental and essential cost-benefit analysis for all regulations. Who could honestly oppose safeguarding the health, welfare and lives of American citizens?
Paul Driessen is senior policy adviser for the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow and author of “Eco-Imperialism: Green Power, Black Death” (Merril Press, 2012).
