Regulatory reform is at least as important as spending, taxes, and deficits, but it doesn’t get nearly as much attention. That’s why we are pleased that Sen. John Barrasso recently sent a Dear Colleague letter around the Senate explaining some of the main findings from the 2011 edition of “Ten Thousand Commandments.” A copy of the study was attached to each letter. You can read Sen. Barrasso’s letter here (PDF).
“Ten Thousand Commandments” is full of reform ideas that would lighten regulation’s heavy hand, and we are delighted that policymakers are starting to take reform ideas seriously. For those who don’t want to read the entire study, 10KC author Wayne Crews and I quickly list some reform ideas here.
