The Marine Retailers Association of America and the National Marine Distributors Association are two of more than 60 groups that are urging Congress to support H.R. 3010, the Regulatory Accountability Act of 2011.

In a letter dated Nov. 2 the groups asked the Judiciary Committee to report the bill to the full House for consideration.

“This bipartisan legislation would modernize and update the 65-year-old regulatory process and improve how federal agencies promulgate regulations with the most significant effects on jobs and economic growth,” they said.

“Recognizing the anemic condition of the American economy and continued weakness in job creation our members believe that regulations need to be narrowly tailored, supported by strong and credible data and evidence and impose the least burden possible while still fulfilling congressional intent,” they added.
