Industry Applauds Passing of Regulatory Reform Bill


Reading time ( words)

On Tuesday, January 13, 2015, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 185, the Regulatory Accountability Act. This bi-partisan bill is designed to curb costly regulations that negatively impact electronics companies’ ability to compete in a global marketplace.

IPC, along with other industry groups, signed a letter in support of the bill. This letter was essential during the floor debate as House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), a sponsor of the bill, referenced the letter to show the bill’s broad support.

IPC has supported this bill through its House passage in 2013, 2014 and now, 2015. This legislative effort was one of the issues discussed during IPC’s advocacy event, IMPACT 2014, last June.

IPC will be working in the months ahead to make sure our industry’s voice is heard as this bill progresses and hopefully gets taken up by the Senate.

You can read more about the bill and how it will modernize the federal rulemaking process here.
