VA Accountability, Transportation Bills Clear U.S. House

2015/07/29

(Washington, DC) – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives continued its work to ensure quality care for Armed Forces veterans by passing H.R. 1994, the “VA Accountability Act,” granting the Secretary of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA) increased flexibility in removing poorly performing VA employees.  Last year Congress passed – and the President signed into law – the “Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act (VACAA),” which enacted a number of changes to programs and policies of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) to increase access and reduce wait times at VA facilities. The passage of today’s bill builds upon those efforts.

“Our veterans have kept their promises to this country, and we must keep the promises that we’ve made to them,” said Rep. Woodall. “There are so many tremendous folks within the VA who serve our veterans with commitment and compassion, but those who do not shouldn’t be protected by a massive federal bureaucracy – and that’s what this legislation eliminates.  It doesn’t remove common sense protections for hardworking men and women, but rather empowers VA officials with the discretionary authority they need to deliver the quality of service our veterans deserve.”

In addition to the VA accountability measure, the House approved legislation extending surface transportation funding for an additional three months as work on a long-term bill continues.  Completion of the multi-year agreement is expected this fall.

“There is no doubt that we’re closing in on the long-term solution that will provide the certainty and predictability Georgians need,” Woodall continued. “Doing the big things takes time, and for far too long Washington didn’t tackle the tough questions about how we were going to pay for our infrastructure.  I’m proud of the work we’re doing now to go about it the right way, and I’m confident we will get there soon.”   

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process, as well as serving on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and Budget Committee.

House Votes to Rein in Regulators

2015/07/28

(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (GA 07) issued the following statement in response to House passage of H.R 427, the “Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act.”  The legislation amends the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to require congressional approval of major agency regulations before they may go into effect.

“A responsible regulatory environment has its benefit, but with unelected bureaucrats imposing more than 3,500 new regulations on American businesses in 2014 and over 2,300 in 2015 so far, it is the American worker and our economy that pays the price – an estimated $1.9 trillion just last year, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute,” said Rep. Woodall. “The burden of excessive regulation is carried by the American people, and they should certainly have a say in the process.  By requiring the support of the people’s elected representatives in Congress, this legislation ensures that their voice is heard – and that irresponsible regulations don’t wreak havoc on our job-creators back home.” 

“Providing an effective government that works for the American people isn’t a partisan issue, and in fact, it was President Obama who in a January 18, 2011, Wall Street Journal op-ed acknowledged that over-regulation limits innovation and negatively affects economic growth.  It is my hope he will now use this opportunity to join the American people in taking a commonsense step towards accountability.”

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process, as well as serving on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and Budget Committee.
