ERIC SCHMITT, Senator for Missouri

Senator Schmitt’s ERASER Act is the beginning of his push for deep structural reform and the dismantling of the administrative state

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Eric Schmitt introduced the Expediting Reform and Stopping Excess Regulations Act, or ERASER Act, to rein in theadministrative state and protect Missourians and Americans from overbearing federal regulations. This is Senator Schmitt’s first bill since being sworn in.

“The administrative state is comprised of thousands of unelected bureaucrats at alphabet agencies that have immense power over the lives of Missourians and Americans. To reduce the burden on Missourians and Americans and to claw that power away from unelected bureaucrats, I introduced the ERASER Act to ensure that burdensome and outdated regulations are repealed before any new regulations are put forward,” said Senator Eric Schmitt. “This is an important step in reducing the regulatory burden on Missourians and Americans and affecting much needed structural reform. I will continue to fight to get government off of the backs of Missourians and Americans, and ensure that power is returned to where it belongs: the people.” 


Specifically, the ERASER Act:

The ERASER Act is cosponsored by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN), Sen. Katie Britt (R-AL), and Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL).

The ERASER Act is endorsed by Heritage Action, Competitive Enterprise Institute, and the Foundation for Government Accountability.
