      In an effort to promote sanity in government, I propose, and urge the
      support, of the following bill in the U.S. Congress:

      Regulatory Reduction Act of 2011

      1. Within 30 days of the adoption of this Act, all rulemaking agencies
      shall not propose or add any regulations or other rules without
      eliminating an equal or greater amount of such regulations or rules,
      measured in bytes or characters.

      2. All rulemaking agencies shall, each calendar year, reduce the total
      of their regulations or rules, measured in bytes or characters, by 5
      percent each year, for a period of 10 years, and 2 percent each year,
      for the next 10 years, from their levels on December 31, 2010.

      3. Each regulation or other rule shall be reviewed by a jury of 12
      randomly selected citizens, once each year, and if at least 8 of the 12
      cannot agree on what that regulation or rule means or requires, or on
      whom it is applicable, it shall be deleted.

      4. No administrative regulation or rule shall be applicable to any but
      employees, contractors, officials, or agents of the government of the
      United States, and each shall specify to which of these it is applicable.

      5. Any agency which violates this Act shall have its funding reduced by
      10 percent for each fiscal year for which it is in violation.

      Please urge your members of Congress to sponsor this bill.
