Blunt introduces bill to streamline federal regulations http://kbia.org/post/sen-blunt-introduces-bill-streamline-federal-regulations <p></p><p>The bill would have Congress create a new commission, which would take input from the public on which regulations are outdated, unnecessary, or too much of a burden. That commission would report back to Congress with recommendations of what changes to make.</p><p>In a press release, Blunt said too many confusing regulations are stifling economic growth. The bill is co-sponsored by Senator Angus King of Maine.&nbsp; Blunt is a Republican, and King is an Independent, although he caucuses with the Senate Democrats.</p> Wed, 31 Jul 2013 21:30:14 +0000 Jennifer Davidson 38051 at http://kbia.org Sen.
