Bipartisan Bill Would Make Independent Regulatory Agencies Less Independent

A radical bill to abolish the independence of regulatory agencies like the Federal Communications Commission, Consumer Product Safety Commission and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is currently making a stealthy journey toward passage by Congress.

The Independent Agency Regulatory Analysis Act (IARAA) was introduced on August 1 by Sens. Mark Warner (D-Virginia), Rob Portman (R-Ohio), and Susan Collins (R-Maine). The bill will be considered by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC), which is chaired by ex-Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Connecticut). Lieberman is said to favor putting the bill on a fast-track to passage, which would eliminate the opportunity for hearings where critics of the legislation could voice their reservations—and advocates would have to explain their support.

Clearly Mark Warner has given up on ever running for President.
