Fighting Against EPA Overreach

On Thursday, I dropped my third bill of the 114th Congress. It repeals the EPA’s most recent rule for new residential heaters. This new rule, which would make residential wood heaters too expensive to produce and buy, is a classic example of EPA nonsense.

The federal government has no business telling private citizens how they should heat their homes. This is one more regulation that will cause unnecessary harm and cost small businesses and families all across America. 

             

 

 

Legislative Update

  • The House passed, and I voted for, legislation to fully repeal the death tax. The death tax is government theft at its worst, and its repeal is long overdue. To learn how this onerous tax is hurting our small businesses and family farms, read my op-ed from last week.
  • I think we can all agree that April 15th is our least favorite day of the year. It's a day we are all reminded the IRS takes too much of our hard earned money. To ensure the IRS is acting in the best interest of the American people, I voted for several common sense bills that passed the House aimed at reining in IRS abuse to protect taxpayers. First we passed the Taxpayer Bill of Rights Act, which creates a strong set of basic rights for taxpayers. Additionally, we passed the Fair Treatment for all Gifts Act which prevents the IRS from taxing donations to any non-profit organization.
  • This past week the House passed the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection Advisory Board Act. I voted for this bill because it would protect small businesses by creating a Small Business Advisory Board to advise the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau regarding concerns for small businesses during the rulemaking process. 
  • The House also passed, with my support, the National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement Act (NCPA), which provides liability protections for private companies sharing cyber threat information within the private sector and with the Department of Homeland Security’s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC). This bill ensures that information sharing is voluntary for private companies and does not allow the use of cyber information for surveillance or law enforcement.
