House Passes Another Jobs Bill to Help Small Businesses
WASHINGTON, DC - House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement praising House passage of H.R. 899, the Unfunded Mandates Information and Transparency Act, sponsored by Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC):
“With our economy stuck in a new normal of stagnant growth and weak private-sector job creation, America’s small businesses cannot afford to foot the bill for every new mandate Washington throws at them.  The Obama administration has handed down reams of arbitrary new rules without regard for their consequences, but those who have to pay for them – states, local governments, and private businesses - don’t have that luxury.  Virginia Foxx’s bill forces the administration to account for the cost of all of its unfunded mandates, and gives those hurt by new rules the chance to weigh in.  I urge Senate Democrats to pass this bill and help rein in the out-of-control bureaucracy standing in the way of stronger economic growth and more American jobs.”
