Time to REIN in Federal Spending

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Vice Chairman of the House Rules Committee, provided the following statement after voting for H.R. 347, the REIN IN Act which would mandate that the Biden Administration undertake and produce a report for any major executive order issued that would detail the inflationary impact of the executive action.

“For the last two years, Americans watched as the Biden Administration wrote several blank checks without any accountability,” said Burgess. “Republicans remain united to end the reckless economic policies put forward by this administration that seek to supercharge and further embed inflation into the American economy. The REIN IN Act will help stop this administration from spending the tax dollars of the next generation by requiring a report for any potential inflationary impact from an executive order.”
