    "...lation in its entirety. However, I will focus my remarks today on title II of this bill, which is in the jurisdiction of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Title II, also known as the ALERT Act, is an attack on agency rulemaking that is inaccurately advertised as an effort to improve transparency. In fact, this bill explicitly prohibits the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs from taking into account benefits when providing estimated cumulative costs to proposed and final ru..."

So an agency might post, on its own, in..."

    "...hey are. That is why we think there should be disclosure. That is why they call it the ALERT Act. It keeps the public informed about what Federal regulators are doing in their name and how much the regulations cost. The bill requires the heads of Federal agencies to provide a monthly update, which is new. That seems reasonable.

Yesterday, we debated a bill that purported to cut bureaucracy by creating a $30 million commission. Today, we are debating a bill that purports to provide transparency but, in fact, decreases transparency. The bill directs the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs to publish the total cost of all rules proposed or finalized without counting any of the offsetting ..."
