H.R. 185, the Regulatory Accountability Act: Modernizes the Administrative Procedure Act’s rulemaking process by: • Increasing public participation in shaping the most costly regulations before they are proposed; • Requiring that agencies must choose the least costly option, unless they can demonstrate that public health, safety, or welfare requires a more costly one; • Giving interested parties the opportunity to hold agencies accountable for their compliance with the Information Quality Act; • Providing for on-the-record administrative hearings for the most costly regulations; • Restricting agencies’ use of interim final regulations where no comments are taken before a regulation takes effect and providing for expedited judicial review of whether that approach is justified; and • Providing for a more rigorous test in legal challenges for those regulations that would have the most impact. Y Voted AGAINST the preferred position

114 H.R.167
H.R. 167, the Wildfire Disaster Funding Act - Requires specified adjustments to discretionary spending limits in FY2015-FY2022 to accommodate appropriations for wildfire suppression operations in the Wildland Fire Management accounts at the Department of Agriculture (USDA) or the Department of the Interior. If USDA or Interior determines that supplemental appropriations are necessary for wildfire suppression operations, the bill requires the relevant department to submit to Congress a request for the funding and a plan for obligating the funds. This bill would end the destructive cycle of fire borrowing and treating catastrophic wildfires like other natural disasters.

Support

114 H.R.1388
H.R. 1388, the Clean Air, Strong Economies Act - Prohibits the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from lowering its national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ozone until at least 85% of counties that are in nonattainment areas (counties that are exceeding the limit) have attained the standard. In promulgating a primary or secondary NAAQS for ozone, the EPA must: only consider a county to be a nonattainment area on the basis of direct air quality monitoring (rather than modeling); take into consideration feasibility and cost; and include in the regulatory impact analysis for the proposed and final rule at least one analysis that does not include any calculation of benefits resulting from reducing emissions of any pollutant other than ozone.

Support

114 H.R.1652
H.R. 1652, the SAVINGS Act - Directs the Department of the Treasury to: (1) allow individual taxpayers an option to purchase U.S. savings bonds in paper form with a portion or all of a tax refund during the period ending on December 31, 2020; or (2) implement an alternative option that allows for the gifting of U.S. savings bonds, serves the unbanked, and retains the ability to sign-up on the return of tax.

Creates a phased, 10-year schedule for implementation of the 2015 Ozone NAAQS rule to allow reductions from the 2008 standard and current programs before any further state actions. Allows new projects to be permitted under the more favorable 2008 standard for the next 2025.

Support

114 H.R.4775
H.R. 4775, the Ozone Standards Implementation Act - Delays implementation of the 2015 ozone NAAQS until 2025 and lengthens the NAAQS review cycle from five years to ten years for all NAAQS. This bill also requires concurrent issuance of all implementation requirements with any NAAQS revision and allows technical feasibility to be a secondary factor in setting the NAAQS after public health is considered.
