Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Wednesday (January 4) upon passage of the Midnight Rules Relief Act of 2017, H.R. 21:

“President Obama has demonstrated time and again that he values his own agenda more than the will of the people or our system of government,” Westerman said. “In his last weeks as president, he has continued to show poor judgment. That is why the Midnight Rules Relief Act is necessary. This bill protects Americans from legislation by the executive branch at the 11th hour and restores constitutional authority to the legislative branch, as our founding fathers intended.”
