"Green Group Launches Ad Against Regs Reform"

"An environmental group launched an advertising campaign Monday to oppose a pair of bills meant to make it more difficult for federal agencies to write regulations.

Clean Air Moms Action is running the digital video ad in five states with closely watched or competitive Senate races next year: Missouri, Indiana, Montana, Florida and Virginia.

In the ad, car safety advocate Janette Fennell talks about the importance of a federal regulation that mandates car trunks to have internal release mechanisms.

The Regulatory Accountability Act and the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act would make it harder for similar regulations to be written, Fennell says."
