Government
Government, a General Statement

Federal regulation is killing the economic engine that keeps our great nation running. Misguided bureaucrats are creating new regulations that will kill small business and stifle job creation. We must stop new regulations and begin a systematic review of existing regulations.

Our communities are not only having to find ways to implement standards dictated to them by Washington, but they also have to find ways to pay for them. We must stop unfunded mandates and return control back to the states.
