    SA 390. Ms. SNOWE (for herself, Mr. Coburn, Mr. McConnell, Mr. Barrasso, Mr. Brown of Massachusetts, Mr. Moran, Mr. Thune, Mr. Enzi, Ms. Ayotte, and Mr. Isakson) submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by her to the bill S. 782, to amend the Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965 to reauthorize that Act, and for other purposes; which was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:

    At the end, add the following:
    TITLE __X--FREEDOM FROM RESTRICTIVE EXCESSIVE EXECUTIVE DEMANDS AND ONEROUS MANDATES


    SEC. __X1. SHORT TITLE.
    This title may be cited as the "Freedom from Restrictive Excessive Executive Demands and Onerous Mandates Act of 2011".
    SEC. __X2. FINDINGS.
    Congress finds the following:
    (1) A vibrant and growing small business sector is critical to the recovery of the economy of the United States.
    (2) Regulations designed for application to large-scale entities have been applied uniformly to small businesses and other small entities, sometimes inhibiting the ability of small entities to create new jobs.
    (3) Uniform Federal regulatory and reporting requirements in many instances have imposed on small businesses and other small entities unnecessary and disproportionately burdensome demands, including legal, accounting, and consulting costs, thereby threatening the viability of small entities and the ability of small entities to compete and create new jobs in a global marketplace.
    (4) Since 1980, Federal agencies have been required to recognize and take account of the differences in the scale and resources of regulated entities, but in many instances have failed to do so.
    (5) In 2009, there were nearly 70,000 pages in the Federal Register, and, according to research by the Office of Advocacy of the Small Business Administration, the annual cost of Federal regulations totals $1,750,000,000,000. Small firms bear a disproportionate burden, paying approximately 36 percent more per employee than larger firms in annual regulatory compliance costs.
    (6) All agencies in the Federal Government should fully consider the costs, including indirect economic impacts and the potential for job loss, of proposed rules, periodically review existing regulations to determine their impact on small entities, and repeal regulations that are unnecessarily duplicative or have outlived their stated purpose.
    (7) It is the intention of Congress to amend chapter 6 of title 5, United States Code, to ensure that all impacts, including foreseeable indirect effects, of proposed and final rules are considered by agencies during the rulemaking process and that the agencies assess a full range of alternatives that will limit adverse economic consequences, enhance economic benefits, and fully address potential job loss.
    SEC. __X3. INCLUDING INDIRECT ECONOMIC IMPACT IN SMALL ENTITY ANALYSES.
    Section 601 of title 5, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following:
    "(9) the term `economic impact' means, with respect to a proposed or final rule--
    "(A) the economic effects on small entities directly regulated by the rule; and
    "(B) the reasonably foreseeable economic effects of the rule on small entities that--
    "(i) purchase products or services from, sell products or services to, or otherwise conduct business with entities directly regulated by the rule;
    "(ii) are directly regulated by other governmental entities as a result of the rule; or
    "(iii) are not directly regulated by the agency as a result of the rule but are otherwise subject to other agency regulations as a result of the rule.".
    SEC. __X4. JUDICIAL REVIEW TO ALLOW SMALL ENTITIES TO CHALLENGE PROPOSED REGULATIONS.
    Section 611(a) of title 5, United States Code, is amended--
    (1) in paragraph (1), by inserting "603," after "601,";
    (2) in paragraph (2), by inserting "603," after "601,";
    (3) by striking paragraph (3) and inserting the following:
    "(3) A small entity may seek such review during the 1-year period beginning on the date of final agency action, except that--
    "(A) if a provision of law requires that an action challenging a final agency action be commenced before the expiration of 1 year, the lesser period shall apply to an action for judicial review under this section; and
    "(B) in the case of noncompliance with section 603 or 605(b), a small entity may seek judicial review of agency compliance with such section before the close of the public comment period."; and
    (4) in paragraph (4)--
    (A) in subparagraph (A), by striking ", and" and inserting a semicolon;
    (B) in subparagraph (B), by striking the period and inserting "; or"; and
    (C) by adding at the end the following:
    "(C) issuing an injunction prohibiting an agency from taking any agency action with respect to a rulemaking until that agency is in compliance with the requirements of section 603 or 605.".
    SEC. __X5. PERIODIC REVIEW.
    Section 610 of title 5, United States Code, is amended to read as follows:"§610. Periodic review of rules

    "(a)(1) Not later than 180 days after the date of enactment of the Freedom from Restrictive Excessive Executive Demands and Onerous Mandates Act of 2011, each agency shall establish a plan for the periodic review of--

    "(A) each rule issued by the agency that the head of the agency determines has a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities, without regard to whether the agency performed an analysis under section 604 with respect to the rule; and
    "(B) any small entity compliance guide required to be published by the agency under section 212 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (5 U.S.C. 601 note).
    "(2) In reviewing rules and small entity compliance guides under paragraph (1), the agency shall determine whether the rules and guides should--
    "(A) be amended or rescinded, consistent with the stated objectives of applicable statutes, to minimize any significant adverse economic impacts on a substantial number of small entities (including an estimate of any adverse impacts on job creation and employment by small entities); or
    "(B) continue in effect without change.
    "(3) Each agency shall publish the plan established under paragraph (1) in the Federal Register and on the Web site of the agency.
    "(4) An agency may amend the plan established under paragraph (1) at any time by publishing the amendment in the Federal Register and on the Web site of the agency.
    "(b) Each plan established under subsection (a) shall provide for--
    "(1) the review of each rule and small entity compliance guide described in subsection (a)(1) in effect on the date of enactment of the Freedom from Restrictive Excessive Executive Demands and Onerous Mandates Act of 2011--
    "(A) not later than 9 years after the date of publication of the plan in the Federal Register; and
    "(B) every 9 years thereafter; and
    "(2) the review of each rule adopted and small entity compliance guide described in subsection (a)(1) that is published after the date of enactment of the Freedom from Restrictive Excessive Executive Demands and Onerous Mandates Act of 2011--
    "(A) not later than 9 years after the publication of the final rule in the Federal Register; and
    "(B) every 9 years thereafter.
    "(c) In reviewing rules under the plan required under subsection (a), the agency shall consider--
    "(1) the continued need for the rule;
    "(2) the nature of complaints received by the agency from small entities concerning the rule;
    "(3) comments by the Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration;
    "(4) the complexity of the rule;
    "(5) the extent to which the rule overlaps, duplicates, or conflicts with other Federal rules and, unless the head of the agency determines it to be infeasible, State and local rules;
    "(6) the contribution of the rule to the cumulative economic impact of all Federal rules on the class of small entities affected by the rule, unless the head of the agency determines that such a calculation cannot be made;
    "(7) the length of time since the rule has been evaluated, or the degree to which technology, economic conditions, or other factors have changed in the area affected by the rule; and
    "(8) the economic impact of the rule, including--
    "(A) the estimated number of small entities to which the rule will apply;
    "(B) the estimated number of small entity jobs that will be lost or created due to the rule; and
    "(C) the projected reporting, recordkeeping, and other compliance requirements of the proposed rule, including--
    "(i) an estimate of the classes of small entities that will be subject to the requirement; and
    "(ii) the type of professional skills necessary for preparation of the report or record.
    "(d)(1) Each agency shall submit an annual report regarding the results of the review required under subsection (a) to--
    "(A) Congress; and
    "(B) in the case of an agency that is not an independent regulatory agency (as defined in section 3502(5) of title 44), the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of the Office of Management and Budget.
    "(2) Each report required under paragraph (1) shall include a description of any rule or guide with respect to which the agency made a determination of infeasibility under paragraph (5) or (6) of subsection (c), together with a detailed explanation of the reasons for the determination.
    "(e) Each agency shall publish in the Federal Register and on the Web site of the agency a list of the rules and small entity compliance guides to be reviewed under the plan required under subsection (a) that includes--
    "(1) a brief description of each rule or guide;
    "(2) for each rule, the reason why the head of the agency determined that the rule has a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities (without regard to whether the agency had prepared a final regulatory flexibility analysis for the rule); and
    "(3) a request for comments from the public, the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration, and the Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman concerning the enforcement of the rules or publication of the guides.
    "(f)(1) Not later than 6 months after each date described in subsection (b)(1), the Inspector General for each agency shall--
    "(A) determine whether the agency has conducted the review required under subsection (b) appropriately; and
    "(B) notify the head of the agency of--
    "(i) the results of the determination under subparagraph (A); and
    "(ii) any issues preventing the Inspector General from determining that the agency has conducted the review under subsection (b) appropriately.
    "(2)(A) Not later than 6 months after the date on which the head of an agency receives a notice under paragraph (1)(B) that the agency has not conducted the review under subsection (b) appropriately, the agency shall address the issues identified in the notice.
    "(B) Not later than 30 days after the last day of the 6-month period described in subparagraph (A), the Inspector General for an agency that receives a notice described in subparagraph (A) shall--
    "(i) determine whether the agency has addressed the issues identified in the notice; and
    "(ii) notify Congress if the Inspector General determines that the agency has not addressed the issues identified in the notice; and
    "(C) Not later than 30 days after the date on which the Inspector General for an agency transmits a notice under subparagraph (B)(ii), an amount equal to 1 percent of the amount appropriated for the fiscal year to the appropriations account of the agency that is used to pay salaries shall be rescinded.
    "(D) Nothing in this paragraph may be construed to prevent Congress from acting to prevent a rescission under subparagraph (C).".
