Regulation Freedom Update

By a 2-1 Margin of 27-13 the Kansas Senate on March 30 passed Majority Leader Jim Denning's Resolution, HCR 5003, urging Congress to propose the Regulation Freedom Amendment to require that Congress approve major new federal regulations.

The Resolution's support includes:

Kansas Chamber..United for Business
Kansas Automobile Dealers Association
Kansas Bankers Association
Kansas Building Industry Association
Kansas Farm Bureau (KGFA))
Kansas Grain and Feed Association
Kansas Cooperative Council (KCC)
Kansas Agribusiness Retailers Association (KARA)

The KS House voted 93-29 on Feb. 15 for the same Resolution sponsored by Rep. Steven Johnson.

23 Legislative Chambers have now passed Resolutions urging Congress to propose the Regulation Freedom Amendment.

Just as states helped force Congress to propose the Bill of Rights, pressure from the states could help force Congress to permanently curb federal regulators and preserve the regulatory reforms of the current Administration.

As we search for issues that can unite supporters of limited government, the cause of permanently ending "regulation without representation" could be one of the decisive issues of 2018.
