EPA Admits It Doesn’t Care About Jobs

EPA Admits they Do Not Care About Jobs

The Environmental Protection Agency, with its approximat 18,000 full-time employees, and a $10 billion budget, with the power to impose virtually unlimited economy-crippling regulatory power granted to it by the Obama Administration, admitted that to them, jobs just don’t matter.

In a April 14th hearing before the House Environment and Economy Subcommittee, U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Co) questioned EPA Assistant Administrator Mathy Stanislaus on the Agency’s economic analyses related to legislation. Specifically, Rep. Gardner asked if the EPA considers the effect its regulations have on jobs, Mr Stanislaus danced around the issue with the most definative answer being "not directly" and he "will get back to you". The overall take away from the testimony is NO they do not directly examine regulations’ impacts on jobs.

On April 14, 2011, President Obama signed H.R. 4, the Small Business Paperwork Mandate Elimination Act of 2011, into law. This legislation repeals the expanded IRS 1099 reporting requirements enacted as part of the healthcare reform law HR 3590. This is a major victory for small businesses around the country that would have been severely impacted by the new requirements.

The House of Representatives passed H.R. 4 on March 3, 314-112. After considering an alternative repeal bill, the Senate passed the House approved bill on April 5, 87-12. To see how your Senators voted click here or Representative click here.   Read More at IECI.org

Hearing Finds Flawed Implementation of Davis-Bacon Poses Risk to Taxpayers and Workers

The Subcommittee on Workforce Protections, chaired by Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI), held a hearing this week to examine the Department of Labor’s implementation of the Davis-Bacon Act. According to a recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) report, a number of challenges affecting the department’s execution of the Act could potentially reduce earnings for workers or increase project costs to taxpayers.

Chairman Walberg called the GAO report “deeply troubling,” and stated, “These are stunning conclusions for a law that governs how hundreds of billions of taxpayer-dollars are spent. In fact, the failed stimulus committed an estimated $300 billion to federal construction projects that could potentially be covered by Davis-Bacon wage rates. In 2009 alone, federal construction and rehabilitation projects totaled roughly $220 billion.”

Chairman Walberg's full remarks, witness testimony, and an archived webcast are available here:
