The President has taken some pretty big steps towards taking power from where there lies too much and giving it back to the States to which it belongs.
He signed House Joint Resolution 37,44,57, and 58 under the Congressional Review Act. This is a little about what that means for us and our nation…
“Before this administration, only one time in our history had a president signed a bill that used the CRA to cancel a federal regulation. So we’re doing a lot of them, and they deserve to be done,” Trump said in his opening remarks.
This was approved by the Senate earlier this month, and the House Joint Resolution 37 literally eliminates an Obama-era regulation that is known as the “blacklisting rule” a ‘rule’ that has been criticized all due to its’ negative impact on our American businesses.
“When I met with manufacturers earlier this year — and they were having a hard time, believe me — they said this blacklisting rule was one of the greatest threats to growing American business and hiring more American workers,” said Trump.
“This rule made it too easy for trial lawyers to get rich by going after American companies and American workers who contract with the federal government — making it very difficult,” he added.
Now the next three resolutions that have been signed by Trump seek out the curtail extensive on federal overreach, using the House Joint Resolution 44 that will take power away from the Bureau of Land Management and returning it to the states.
“House Joint Resolution 44 removes a Bureau of Land Management rule that took control of land-use decisions away from states and local decision makers and gave it to Washington, and that’s not good,” commented Trump.
Trump has also signed House Joint Resolution 57 and 58, these two are ones the president himself claims will eliminate harmful burdens on state and local school systems and potentially SAVE those states millions.
Can I get an AMEN!?
“The other two bills — House Joint Resolutions 57 and 58 — eliminate harmful burdens on state and local taxes on school systems that could have cost states hundreds of millions of dollars. So it’s the states and local-tax school systems, and that was very important,” said the president.
“Parents, teachers, communities, and state leaders know the needs of their students better than anyone in Washington by far. So we’re removing these additional layers of bureaucracy to encourage more freedom and innovation in our schools,” Trump continued.
Now, even with these advances towards shrinking big government and returning it to the States and in essence the people, Trump has still vowed he is FAR from being done with this mission.
…these words are music to our ears.
“I will keep working with Congress, with every agency, and most importantly with the American people until we eliminate every unnecessary, harmful, and job-killing regulation that we can find. We have a lot more coming,” he said.
