Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) introduced the Red Tape Reduction Act, legislation that codifies and protects five of President Trump’s most impactful deregulatory executive orders.
“President Trump worked to unravel the regulatory web in Washington and pull back the heavy hand of government that hurts small businesses, farmers, and workers. Coupled with tax cuts, this unleashed the strongest economy in modern history. Unfortunately, the Biden Administration has rescinded many successful deregulatory policies and is embracing a big government mindset that will pull down our economy when we most need growth and hurt rural communities in Iowa. That’s why I introduced legislation to save President Trump’s deregulatory agenda and make his pro-growth policies permanent.” –Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
“Unreasonable regulations from the federal government make it harder on our small business to operate. These requirements often make absolutely no sense and do far more harm than good. Now, more than ever, we need the government to get out of the way and stay out of the way. I appreciate that Representative Hinson is listening to the needs of small businesses in Iowa and is leading on policies that will help us grow.” –Cedar Rapids Small Business Owner, Jerry Akers
