By Rasmussen Reports
1* Generally speaking, do government regulators apply the law fairly to all or do they let their own personal biases affect how they apply the rules?
2* Some people believe regulators should be banned from going to work for the companies they oversee. Should there be a lifetime ban on regulators working for companies they regulate, a five-year ban, or no ban on regulators working for companies they regulate?
3* Should members of Congress be required to publicly disclose all meetings and contacts with regulators and government officials?
4* Is it a good idea to let government regulators pass rules without requiring approval from Congress?
5* Should all new regulations approved by government agencies every year require approval from Congress before they can go into effect?
