The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed The Achieving Less Excessin Regulation and Requiring Transparency (ALERRT) Act (H.R. 2804) and the Responsibly and Professionally Invigorating Development (RAPID) Act (H.R. 2641) with bipartisan support. The ALERRT Act would impose additional oversight on federal agencies, as well as require them to be more transparent throughout the rulemaking process. It also would require agencies to better analyze the economic burdens of proposed regulations before they are finalized. The RAPID Act would increase efficiency by setting new deadlines for agency regulators to complete the Environmental Impact Statement and Environmental Assessment review process, as well as increase transparency by reducing the time outside groups may issue legal challenges. The ALERRT Act, introduced by Rep. George Holding (R-N.C.), passed by a vote of 236-179; the RAPID Act, introduced by Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.), passed by a vote of 229-179.
