Representative Doug Collins (R-GA) released a statement after the completion of his district-wide regulation tour, which highlighted industries throughout Georgia's Ninth District that have been hit especially hard by the Obama Administration's five year fixation with increasing government overregulation. During the two-day event, Collins met, toured and spoke with members of the medical, agricultural and energy industries in Northeast Georgia.
"Regulation reform is going to be a top priority for me during my time in Washington because it's adversely affecting the lives of Northeast Georgians every single day," said Collins. "The past forty-eight hours have been even more enlightening into the harsh realities our job creators face every single day due to the Obama's Administration lack of interesting in promoting our free market system. This must come to an end in order to rejuvenate our economy.
"I'm excited to tackle this important issue in Washington with the Regulatory Working Group I have established along with Congressman Ted Yoho of Florida and other members of my freshman class. Through a collaborative effort of different thoughts, I believe we can work to bring real change to the regulatory burdens that are hurting job creation and private sector development. The people of the Ninth District can rest assured I will be taking many of their ideas from home back to Congress, because I believe the conservative values of Northeast Georgia can contribute and strengthen our national economy as a whole."
