STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT WILLIAM J. CLINTON ON SENATE REJECTION OF REGULATORY MORATORIUM
I am deeply committed to regulatory reform that cuts red tape without undercutting the health and safety of the American people. Giving the Congress 45 days to consider regulations before they take effect would let lawmakers focus on the specifics of these issues and address real problems as they come up, without delaying necessary public protections. This approach, not the blunt instrument of a moratorium, is the right way to reform regulation. It's common sense.
