Regulatory Accountability Act Passes House

Today the House of Representatives passed the Regulatory Accountability Act, H.R. 3010, by a vote of 253-167.  No Republicans voted against it; 19 Democrats voted for it.  The general expectation is that the bill will not advance in the Senate, and the White House has threatened a veto if it does, so the ultimate fate of the legislation will likely turn on the results of the 2012 elections.

Press coverage of the vote can be found here and here.  The Section's comments on the bill are here.
