Rokita: Costly Energy Regulations are Hindering Job Creation

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita, a member of the House Budget Committee, released the following statement after the committee's hearing titled "America's Energy Revolution: A New Path to Jobs and Economic Growth." During the hearing, Rokita questioned witnesses and specifically cited a Red Tape Rollback case on behalf of Buzzi-Unicem, a Greencastle cement plant.

"Congress must continue its constitutional role of oversight of this administration. Regulations like the ones the President unveiled this week are lowering production, increasing energy costs and hindering job growth. In any economic environment, but particularly now, federal regulations must be smart and must not needlessly hinder job creation." said Rokita.

Rokita's Red Tape Rollback program was created specifically to help Hoosier job creators navigate the maze of regulations being issued by Washington bureaucrats in the Obama administration that threaten job growth.
