The COVID-19 pandemic has helped expose this tragic reality that much of our federal red tape stands in the way of emergency response and economic recovery. “The Unfunded Mandates Accountability and Transparency Act would extend commonsense regulatory requirements to independent agencies, reduce overwhelming regulatory burdens for state, local, and tribal governments, and expand accountability through judicial review.”   […]
