ALERRT Act Helps Americans Get Ahead

WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) today released the following statement after the House passed the Achieving Less Excess in Regulation and Requiring Transparency (ALERRT) Act of 2014:

“The endless stream of regulations coming from our out-of-control bureaucracy continue to make it harder for Americans to get ahead. Overregulation means fewer jobs, lower take-home pay and less opportunity for everyone. We’ve already learned that the massive regulatory burden of Obamacare will result millions of American workers facing higher insurance premiums. That’s less money in our pockets for groceries, for gas, or for putting kids through college. It’s time to stop the regulatory assault on our freedoms and our wallets. House Republicans today stood up against government overreach by passing a bill that would bring much-needed reform and transparency to our regulatory system with the the ALERRT Act. As we near the conclusion of Stop Government Abuse week, this is another push toward getting the federal government out of the way of success.”
