Heritage Action Praises Regulatory Task Force

Washington — Today, the House Republican’s regulatory task force released its policy recommendations. Last December, Speaker Paul D. Ryan promised to “show what we would do, what our ideal policy would be.” Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:

“The Obama administration’s regulatory regime is stifling economic growth and undermining economic opportunity for millions of Americans. The wide ranging task force report highlights important policy changes and emphasizes the role legislative branch can and should play in the regulatory process. We cannot allow an overreaching executive branch filled with overzealous, left-wing bureaucrats to continue stifling our economy. Heritage Action looks forward to working with House Republicans to reassert their constitutional authority and advance an agenda that provides Opportunity for All and Favoritism to None.”
