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.

Letter of Support: TSA Efficiency and Flexibility Act

July 25, 2011 J

Dear Senator Wicker and Representative Rokita,

On behalf of more than 1.7 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I applaud your recent introduction of the TSA Efficiency and Flexibility Act (S. 1353/H.R. 2507), to add Transportation Security Administration (TSA) workers to the list of federal employees statutorily prohibited from collective bargaining, while taking care to ensure their employment rights are duly protected by other, more effective means.

Letter of Support: Rep. Griffith’s EPA Regulatory Relief Act, H.R. 2250

June 28, 2011 J

Dear Representative Griffith,

On behalf of more than 1.7 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I write to commend you for introducing H.R. 2250, the EPA Regulatory Relief Act. The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) latest regulatory push – setting stringent new emissions standards on more than 200,000 boilers, process heaters, and incinerators nationwide – promises high compliance costs that will sap resources from a diverse array of American job-creators. Your bill would address these new job-killing regulations head on, putting them on at least a temporary hold until regulators can sort out technical problems and address strong concerns that the rules are not workable in the real world and will result in thousands of lost jobs.

AFP Response to Sunstein Regulatory Review

May 26, 2011 J

The results of Obama’s regulatory review are in, and as expected they amount to pro-business window-dressing on his astonishing onslaught of new regulations. While changes like eliminating redundant EPA vapor recovery regulations and OSHA labeling harmonization are welcome, they are small potatoes in the context of the president’s disregard for Congress and the American people to move full-steam ahead on his broader agenda.
