Senator Roberts Introduces Regulations Reform Bill

Kansas Senator Pat Roberts says he wants to put some "teeth" into an executive order issued by President Barack Obama. The order directed federal agencies to review regulations, to be sure that they aren't harming the U-S economy. On Tuesday, Roberts introduced a bill that he says will codify the president's executive order of January 18th, when the president said that some regulations are necessary to protect the public from threats...and to protect businesses from abuse.

Roberts says he is concerned about what appear to be loopholes in the executive order's language. These exempt certain regulations in the new federal health care law and financial reform laws. Roberts says his bill will be called the "Regulatory Responsibility for Our Economy Act."
