  • This week, both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate are in session for legislative business, though neither chamber is expected to consider student financial aid-related legislation. Of interest to NCHER members, the House is expected to consider two pieces of legislation regarding the development of federal regulations, including::

    o H.R. 5, the Regulatory Accountability Act, which would reform the process by which federal agencies analyze and formulate new regulations and guidance documents, clarify the nature of judicial review of agency interpretations, and ensure that agency analysis include the potential impact of the rule on small businesses. In particular, the legislation requires federal agencies, before issuing any major to conduct.

    o H.R. 78, the SEC Regulatory Accountability Act, which would require the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), before issuing a regulation, to clearly identify the nature and source of the problem that the proposed regulation is designed to address, assess the costs and benefits of the intended regulation, identify alternatives to the regulation that were considered, and ensure that the regulation is accessible, consistent, written in plain language, and is easy to understand.
