Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) released the following statement on the Countering Communist China Act, a comprehensive legislative package to meaningfully combat the threat from the Chinese Communist Party. Hinson’s Red Tape Reduction Act is included in the bill.

“We have let Communist China rip off the U.S. and get away with bad behavior on the global stage for too long. I’m proud that my legislation, the Red Tape Reduction Act, was included in this comprehensive legislative plan to counter Communist China. The Red Tape Reduction Act will reinstate President Trump’s deregulatory agenda that gave small businesses and rural America the freedom to succeed and helped our economy grow. An unleashed American economy is Communist China’s worst nightmare.” –Congresswoman Ashley Hinson

The Red Tape Reduction Act will save five of President Trump’s Deregulation Executive Orders: 

Executive Order 13771 – Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs

Executive Order 13891 – Promoting the Rule of Law Through Improved Agency Guidance Documents 
Prohibits federal agencies from issuing binding rules through guidance documents without approval from Congress. 

Executive Order 13892 – Promoting the Rule of Law Through Transparency and Fairness in Civil Administrative Enforcement and Adjudication

Executive Order 13893 – Increasing Government Accountability for Administrative Actions by Reinvigorating Administrative PAYGO 
Requires agencies to find a ay to cut spending when they put forward a proposal to increase spending.
