Freedom from Regulations Supported by SD House

red_tape_bgThe South Dakota House of Representatives voted 56-14 in favor of HCR 1005, a resolution calling on congress to propose a “regulation freedom amendment” to the U.S. Constitution due to the encroachment of liberty perpetrated by our nation’s out-of-control regulatory environment.

A key provision of the resolution calls for a majority vote by congress on any federal regulation that one-quarter of the members of congress oppose.

The legislation carries no force of law, but is a statement of the opinion of the legislature and calls on our federal representatives to take action.
