Letter of Support: Reining In EPA and Army Corps “Wetlands” Regulators

In recent years, however, the EPA and the Army Corps have attempted to expand their jurisdiction to impose stringent new regulations on isolated wetlands, ephemeral streams, farm runoff and drainage, and other “waters” in the U.S. that are arguably not at all connected to navigable waters nor interstate commerce. A recent guidance document, for example, tries to circumvent both Congress and multiple Supreme Court rulings on wetlands regulation.

By Phil Kerpen

Published October 24, 2011 | FoxNews.com

In the belief that government regulation is blocking job creation, House GOP leaders aim not only to repeal specific regulations, but also to reform the rule-making system.

Letter of Support: Sen. DeMint’s Bill to Stop the NLRB’s “Quickie” Elections, S. 1425

July 28, 2011 J

Dear Senator DeMint,

On behalf of more than 1.7 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I applaud your recent introduction of S. 1425, the Fair Representation in Elections Act. Your legislation would prevent the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB or “the Board”) from implementing “quickie” elections that limit employer’s right to free speech and workers’ rights to receive relevant information in union organizing campaigns.
