REINS Act Passes the House

Rep. Todd Young (no relation) announced via Twitter that the REINS Act, which he sponsored, has passed the House.

Wayne Crews and I wrote about REINS for Forbes, and also talked about the bill in a podcast.

The bill now moves to the Senate, where Sen. Rand Paul will try to shepherd it through. The White House issued a veto threat, but with all the recent accountability scandals, a bit of good publicity in that department could go a long way.
