Bergman Votes to Streamline Bureaucracy
Washington – Congressman Jack Bergman (MI-1) released the following statement after voting in favor of H.R. 998, the Searching for and Cutting Regulations that are Unnecessarily Burdensome (SCRUB) Act:
“People across the First District know that, to be successful in any venture, you have to be able to look at what you have, figure out what’s working and what isn’t, and make changes that help you meet your goals. Those same principles should be applied throughout our bureaucracy. To be successful, our government needs to know what the current regulatory landscape looks like and be able to act on those findings.
“That’s why I support this legislation that would establish a bipartisan commission to review federal regulations and eliminate those that are costly, outdated, and—most importantly—ineffective. Before we can fix the problem, we need to be able to diagnose the problem. This bill takes positive first steps in that direction.”
