Tipton Gives Update on Congressional Activity

SCOTT-TIPTON-NEW-300Congressman Scott Tipton phoned into Wild West Radio yesterday to give an update on what’s been going on in Congress. Tipton says there are a couple of bills he’s attached to that are expected to limit the authority of Federal Regulatory agencies, such as the EPA and the Fish and Wildlife Service. Tipton has been working on two pieces of legislation.  The first is the REINS Act, which has been passed in the House and is awaiting action in the Senate.  The bill would bring Congress back into the fold during the rule making process of Federal Regulatory Agencies.  The second is the Tailor Act, which provides access to capital for small businesses.  Tipton says he has attached similar stipulations to the Tailor Act that would also require any rule changes to undergo a Congressional review.  Tipton says it only makes sense to have Congress involved in rule making, considering the fact that it takes an act of Congress to undo any of the rules.
