House to Regulators: Cut the Duplicative and Outdated Rules

Argument in favor

Would help to ensure that proposed financial regulations are put forward in a thoughtful manner that takes into account existing regulations.

Argument opposed

Potentially costly to taxpayers due to a likely climb in labor at seven different regulatory entities, in order to self-analyze on a deadline.
