In a recent congressional hearing, Senator Collins questioned the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs Administrator (OIRA), Cass Sunstein, on a new EPA rule that counted, as a benefit, the cost of hiring new workers to comply with new regulations.

"I doubt that any small business that was subjected to this new regulation would consider it a benefit to be forced to hire new employees specifically to comply with new regulations," Senator Collins questioned. "Without thoughtful analysis of the impact of regulations, we risk imposing an unnecessary burden on job creation- an unacceptable result at a time when so many Americans remain jobless."
