Sen. John Thune, R-S.D.

(The Center Square) - U.S. senators from South Dakota and Oklahoma introduced a bill they say would hold the Biden administration and federal agencies accountable when proposing regulations that could impact the economy.

The Regulatory Transparency Act would require a thorough regulatory impact analysis for “economically significant rules.” It would also expand judicial review of “significant rules” to increase objectivity and transparency, the senators said.

U.S. Senators John Thune, R-S.D., and James Lankford, R-Okla., introduced the legislation this week. Both represent states that are no strangers to conflict with the federal government over regulatory policies.
