get the government back in balance

Join the Balancing Act Project to restore balance, accountability and transparency in agency rulemaking.

The Balancing Act Project (BAP) will tell the story of this imbalance on behalf of affected industries and consumers and champion legislation that will reassert Congress as the final say in regulations,
re-empowering the voice of the People in regulations through their elected officials.

H. Beales, et al.,”Government Regulations: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly”, released by the Regulatory Transparency Project of the Federalist Society, June 2017.

While smart regulations give businesses the rules of the road so they can operate, innovate and invest with certainty, unchecked regulatory power stifles growth and innovation, leaving the regulated no choice but to go out of business or pass legal and compliance costs to consumers.

The time to join is now

In 2024, the U.S. Supreme Court will review the constitutionality of federal agencies to interpret the intent Congress in agency. This will give businesses impacted by regulations the power to challenge decisions affecting every American citizen and businesses through their elected representatives.
