Growing Our Economy, One Less Regulation at a Time

Helping put a stop to over burdensome regulations that hurt our businesses and hinder job growth is one of my main missions in Congress. On Tuesday, I furthered my commitment to keeping government bureaucrats out of our businesses. With my support, the House passed H.R.185, the Regulatory Accountability Act of 2015, by a vote of 250-175.

This legislation targets the way in which federal agencies go about the rule making process by requiring government agencies to adopt the least costly alternative, while using use the best obtainable science, when deciding how to implement new rules and regulations. Additionally, this legislation would also require that agencies hold hearings to receive public input, as well as issue advance notices of costly rule making regulations that would have an economic impact of over $100 million a year.

I believe that sound science and common sense business practices should drive rule making decisions, not the Administration’s political agenda. In a time of economic recovery, the government should be helping America’s businesses, not weighing them down with costly regulations.
