Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) released the following statement regarding his vote for the Regulatory Accountability Act of 2015:

“My job is to lift the heavy, unnecessary burdens that have been placed on the people in my district by the federal government, while making sure that our government operates in a way that promotes job creation and economic growth. I know that local businesses are drowning in a sea of red tape, and this directly effects the paychecks and livelihoods of families in west Texas. These regulations negatively impact the energy and agriculture industries, and also lead to higher energy costs, having an oversized affect on the pocketbooks of lower-income families and those on a fixed income. Requiring unaccountable federal bureaucrats to be more transparent and to increase public participation before issuing these costly regulations is just common sense.”
