NRCA Action Alert: Support Regulatory Reform Legislation
Are you tired of dealing with ever-increasing and burdensome government regulations affecting your business? NRCA
recognizes roofing contractors face an unprecedented array of federal regulations and is working to advance the
Regulatory Accountability Act (H.R. 5) as a solution to this problem. NRCA urges you to contact your representative to
urge his or her support of this critical legislation.
NRCA supports the Regulatory Accountability Act to reduce regulatory burdens on roofing contractors. This legislation
will reform the federal regulatory process governed by the Administrative Procedures Act, which has not been updated in
nearly 70 years. H.R. 5 will:
Increase stakeholder participation in shaping the most costly regulations, including consideration of economic
impacts, before they are proposed
Improve agency cost/benefit analysis to minimize adverse economic impacts of regulations
Hold agencies more accountable to the public and increase transparency in the regulatory process
Rein in agency use of "guidance documents" to circumvent the regulatory process
This legislation will provide relief to businesses by reversing the trend of constantly increasing regulatory
