Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Mike Gallagher voted tonight in favor of two bills, H.J. Res. 38 and H.J. Res. 31, that eliminate burdensome rules and regulations issued by federal agencies. Both bills passed in the House.

 

In response to tonight’s votes, Rep. Gallagher released the following statement:

 

“Earlier this month we passed the REINS Act to bring some order to an out of control bureaucracy, hold government accountable, and return power back to the American people. With tonight’s passage of H.J. Res. 38 and H.J. Res. 31, we have made further strides in scaling back an Obama-era mindset of regulating our economy to death. Our votes help eliminate recent red tape that suffocates small businesses, destroys jobs, and indirectly places further economic burdens onto families in Northeast Wisconsin. These bills play an important step in unleashing our country’s economic potential, especially for our largely untapped energy sector. Promoting economic growth remains one of my top priorities in Congress, and I look forward to continue working to provide transparency and regulatory relief for taxpayers in Northeast Wisconsin.”
