McCarthy: time to ease regulations on small businesses so they can expand and grow
"HR 2940 is just one of the many bills my colleagues and I are working on to ease the regulatory environment that is stalling hiring and contributing to our stagnant economy. On Friday, we passed the Transparency in Regulatory Analysis of Impacts on the Nation (TRAIN) Act, which would require an analysis of specific EPA rules to determine their impact on the economy , as well as delay other costly rules that could increase electricity prices up to 24 percent annually. Now is not the time to increase costs on families and businesses, and I will continue to fight to ensure the government does not saddle you with unnecessary costs.
"This Saturday, I’m participating in the official grand opening of the Bakersfield Vet Center. The men and women who have sacrificed to defend our nation deserve our unending support, and with the opening of this center, they now have greater access to information and resources. I am also gearing up for my annual U.S. Service Academy Forum. This forum is a great opportunity for high school students to learn about opportunities available to them through a military education. The forum will be held at the Kern County Board of Supervisors’ Chambers on Saturday, October 22nd from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Please contact my office at 327-3611 to RSVP.
