WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) today issued the following statement regarding House passage of H.R. 21, the Midnight Rules Relief Act of 2017:

“President Obama’s last-minute regulatory assault is an abuse of power that will cost the American people billions of dollars and hurt families and small businesses. Today, the House acted to stop these radical regulations in their tracks and protect Americans from the Obama Administration’s shameful midnight-hour power grab. Working with President Trump we will roll back these mountains of job-killing red tape so we can get our economy back on track and make America great again.”
