GOP to Focus on Eliminating U.S. Regs

Majority Leader Cantor says House will target EPA, NLRB rules.

Republicans will focus on limiting government regulations, including environmental and labor rules, that are creating “burdens to job creators,” U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said.

The agenda for the rest of the year will include repealing or scaling back Environmental Protection Agency rules on power plant pollution, ozone standards and greenhouse gas emissions, Cantor, a Virginia Republican, said today in a memo to Republican lawmakers.
