The House of Representatives has approved a bill that calls for government agencies to implement new rules using the least costly means, FierceGovernment reported Thursday.

Ryan McDermott writes the Regulatory Accountability Act passed the House 250-175 on Tuesday.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), author of the bill, said government agencies must “find more cost-effective ways to implement laws passed by Congress, reducing red tape and lowering the costs for American families,” according to the report.

President Barack Obama is expected to veto the legislation as the White House believes the bill would raise the costs for agencies, FierceGovernment reports.
