Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Committee on Rules, released the following statement after passage of three important regulatory reform measures:

“Earlier this week President Trump delivered a strong message to the American people that made one thing crystal clear – the days of the Obama Administration’s regulatory regime are over. We have finally turned the page and have started a new chapter for our country. One that unleashes the free-enterprise system, puts hard working Americans back to work, and creates more opportunities for all Americans.

“This week the House worked to put this agenda in motion by passing three critical measures that responsibly reform our regulatory system while enforcing measures of accountability, transparency, and integrity. Regulations have run rampant these last eight years but enough is enough. Republicans have made a concerted and focused effort to eliminate unnecessary rules and regulations to give the American people the relief that they need.”
