Oct 31, 2011
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren (IL-14) today released the following statement regarding the Senate’s failure to act on H.R. 872, the Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act, which the House passed with bipartisan support on March 31st.

“Seven months ago, the House passed H.R. 872, a commonsense bill to protect farmers, ranchers, and other Americans from duplicative and burdensome red tape,” said Hultgren, a member of the Agriculture Committee. “Since then, the Senate has failed to consider our bill – Harry Reid has refused to schedule a vote on it – so today, thanks to a court order, the new avalanche of red tape we had tried to prevent is descending upon farmers, ranchers, and others.”

For more information on H.R. 872, see the House Agriculture Committee’s website. More information about the Republican Plan for America’s Job Creators is available here.
