Tester’s Bill to Cut Regulation and Create More Jobs Heads to President’s Desk
Bipartisan Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act to be 14th Bill Tester Sends to President Trump
(U.S. Senate)-U.S. Senator Jon Tester issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed his bipartisan Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act:
“One-size-fits-all rules from Washington have been strangling Montana’s Main Street economy and threatening our rural way of life. Working with Republicans and Democrats, we wrote this bill to defend Montana businesses from overreaching government regulations, to boost access to the capital needed to fuel our small business economy, and to create more jobs. When the extremes on both sides of the aisle tried to derail our efforts, we bucked partisan politics and instead found common ground.”
The House of Representatives passed the bipartisan Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act, 258-159. The Senate passed the legislation in March by a vote of 67-31.
