Latta: Intrusive Government Regulations Will Burden Families and Businesses

Washington, DC, August 2, 2013 | Laura Strange (202-225-6405)

This week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed several legislative measures aimed at stopping government abuse and reining in burdensome federal regulations. Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) released the following statement in support of this week’s bills:

“The package of bills passed in the House this week are a step in the right direction to protecting hardworking American taxpayers from intrusive and costly government interference that are burdening families and businesses, and more importantly a step in the direction of putting the American people back to work.

“Each week when I am visiting with constituents in Ohio’s Fifth Congressional District, whether I’m at a farm, a hospital, an energy plant, a manufacturer, a school or a small business, every single one of them will bring up their concerns with government regulations. Unnecessary and costly regulations cast a shadow of uncertainty over every impacted entity and the results are reduced investment, stunted job growth and a dismal economic outlook.”

Legislation passed to protect hardworking Americans include:

H.R. 1582 - Energy Consumers Relief Act

H.R. 2009 - Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act of 2013

H.R. 367 - Regulations From the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2013

H.R. 1660 - Government Customer Service Improvement Act of 2013

H.R. 313 - Government Spending Accountability Act

H.R. 2565 - STOP IRS Act

H.R. 2769 - Stop Playing on Citizen's Cash Act

H.R. 2768 - Taxpayer Bill of Rights Act of 2013

H.R. 2879 - Stop Government Abuse Act
