A Sunset Law for Regulations

A Sunset Law for Regulations 

S.93 would delete state code language requiring agencies to review regulations every five years and would instead stipulate that all regulations expire five years after their enactment. This is an excellent reform that would help to reduce regulations which restrict citizen freedom and hinder economic wellbeing. Research has found that sunset laws are the most effective method of reducing levels of regulation. This change should be followed by further reforms requiring no regulation become law without express legislative approval.
