Hearing of the House Rules Committee - H.R. 4078 -- Regulatory Freeze for Jobs Act of 2012


Location: Washington, DC

* Chairman Dreier, Ranking Member Slaughter, and Members of the Committee on Rules:

* Thank you for allowing to me to speak in support of the RICHARDSON Amendments to H.R. 4078, the Regulatory Freeze for Jobs Act of 2012.

* The Richardson Amendments are common-sense amendments that ensure that the federal government can provide basic protections for its most vulnerable citizens.

* The amendments allow for the government to take significant regulatory action when the unemployment rate is above six percent when those actions are intended for the following purposes:

* To protect senior citizens from abuse and neglect in nursing homes;

* To protect senior citizens facing foreclosure on their principle residence;

* To properly implement healthcare reform;

* To enforce the consumer protections promised under the Fair Credit Reporting Act; and

* To ensure that veterans receive their promised benefits.

* The purpose of H.R. 4078 is to boost the economy in times of high unemployment, and my amendments will inspire consumer confidence and protect vulnerable populations.

* I thank Chairman Dreier, Ranking Member Slaughter, and Members of the Rules Committee for allowing me to speak on my amendments to the Regulatory Freeze for Jobs Act.

* I urge the Rules Committee to make the Richardson Amendments in order. Thank you.
