Don’t Let Congress Aid and Abet Reckless Corporations
Tell Your Representative to VOTE NO on H.R. 185
A vote in Congress is coming soon on H.R. 185, a bill designed to obstruct commonsense regulations – such as preventing Wall Street from blowing up our economy again and stopping corporate polluters from poisoning our air and water.
This is the way Corporate America wants Washington to work. Instead of protecting people and our environment, the system is being rigged for who profit by exploiting and polluting our communities.
The public’s power to prevent wrongdoing and hold reckless businesses accountable should be strengthened, not weakened.
Fight back: Make sure your member of Congress in the U.S. House knows you want him or her to VOTE NO on H.R. 185.

What does H.R. 185 do?
Specifically, the bill – dubbed the “Regulatory Accountability Act” – would add burdensome hurdles to make it virtually impossible for federal agencies like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to write new rules.
Worse, it would direct agencies to prioritize writing regulations so they are as cheap as possible for Big Business – instead of prioritizing writing them based on what scientific and economic evidence shows would most benefit the public.Learn More: Read an article about the "Regulatory Accountability Act" in The Hill
