Website aims to collect info on 'burdensome' regulations

Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., wants you to tell him about "burdensome" federal regulations.

Stearns, chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, said Wednesday he is working to set up a website where people can identify regulations that they think are stifling economic growth.

"It is the American people who must comply with these regulations and pay their costs, and I am asking them to report any burdensome regulations that hurt the economy," Stearns said. "I am working with the Energy & Commerce Committee to establish this section on the Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee's web page."

Until that page is set up, Stearns has established a section on his website where constituents can report offending regulations.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., launched a similar effort before officially taking over his post, reaching out to a range of businesses to tell him which government regulations are stifling economic growth.
