Making good on a campaign pledge, Sen. Deb Fischer signed a letter Monday with 22 other Senators asking tough questions of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

And, Fischer is cosponsoring a bill to reduce federal regulations -- The Regulatory Responsibility for Our Economy Act of 2013.

The bill would requires executive agencies to modify, streamline or repeal significant regulatory actions that are duplicative or overly burdensome, she said.

In regard to the letter, Fischer said the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have proposed revisions to the way economic impacts are analyzed before wildlife habitat is designated as critical.

The two-page detailed letter is intended to more clearly layout the economic impacts on private and state lands and show the true cost associated with critical habitat designations, she said.

“For too many years, the federal government has expanded its reach into the lives of ordinary citizens and businesses," Fischer said. "Overregulation destroys the entrepreneurial spirit and stifles economic growth.”

“The rulemaking process here in Washington is in desperate need of greater transparency, clearer focus on cost-benefit analyses, and some Nebraska common sense,” she said.
