I believe that the number one issue facing the federal government is the federal budget, which has ballooned out of control. I support sensible, common sense measures to keep the federal budget in check.
One of Congress’ primary functions is to oversee the executive branch’s actions, and review agency regulations to ensure they are following the laws passed by Congress. This is an essential core to the notion of Separation of Powers. As a member of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, I take my responsibility to oversee the executive branch seriously, and have called for greater transparency at the Departments of Health and Human Services, Energy, and Commerce, as well as at the Environmental Protection Agency, and will be following their implementation of recent legislation closely.
As with any other issue of concern to you and your family, I hope you will take the time to let me know how you feel about this issue. To find the best means to contact me, click here.
