Enzi: True Regulatory Reform Can Help All Americans Grow and Prosper
WASHINGTON D.C. – Senate Budget Committee Chairman Mike Enzi (R-WY) today, during a joint hearing with the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee on regulatory reform, said Congress has a responsibility to help make it easier for hardworking Americans to grow their businesses or advance in their jobs, instead of worrying about inefficient and ineffective regulations.
“The burden of government regulation continues to grow for each and every American,” said Chairman Enzi. “If excessive government regulations impede smart economic growth, they should be improved, and if they are not needed, they should be eliminated. True regulatory reform can help serve as the foundation for helping all Americans grow and prosper.”
Chairman Enzi noted that one study estimated the regulatory burden in the United States in 2014 was more than $1.8 trillion, which is bigger than the entire Gross Domestic Product of India. He said this burden is dragging down our economy when we should be working to boost economic growth and help create more jobs, which are particularly hurting small businesses, traditionally America’s economic engine.
“Congress has a responsibility to help make it easier for hardworking Americans to grow their businesses or advance in their jobs. Inefficient and ineffective regulations make that more difficult,” Chairman Enzi said. “It is time to prioritize and demand results to ensure that government works for the people, instead of the people working for the government.”
