McMorris Rodgers: Americans Must Be Protected from an Out-of-Control Government

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today after the House of Representatives passed 11 bills as a part of Stop Government Abuse Week.

“When I was traveling around Eastern Washington last week, I heard from too many people who are worried about the unprecedented growth of the federal government. They're afraid of more mandates, more regulations, and more interference. And they're afraid of a President who makes unilateral decisions without consulting Congress. From defending our constitutional rights to stopping the IRS targeting people for their political beliefs, I am proud of the House for acting to bring an end to government abuse. This will protect hardworking families in Eastern Washington and help restore people’s trust in their government.”

·         H.R. 1211 – FOIA Oversight and Implementation Act of 2014

·         H.R. 1423 – Taxpayers Right-to-Know Act

·         H.R. 2530 – Taxpayer Transparency and Efficient Audit Act
