Blogger Gets Debate over Regulations Right
by Randy Rabinowitz, 4/18/2013
A Detroit News blogger got the debate over regulations exactly right in a post earlier this week. He noted that when a hazardous product is regulated, alternative products pop up to take their place.
The government must set standards and safeguards to protect the public from unscrupulous corporations and the hazards they create. This is a message that members of Congress and staff at the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, among others, should heed. Public protections save lives, protect Americans' health and safety, and are essential to a strong, stable economy.
