Making Progress on the Conservative Agenda
The first 100 days under President Trump have come with a lot of change- and House Republicans broke a 30-year record for the most productivity by passing 103 bills during the first 100 days. Even better, President Trump has already signed 30 of those bills into law.
The Congressional Review Act (CRA) is a special legislative tool that allows Congress to overturn regulations if they meet certain thresholds- for instance, if they have an annual economic impact of more than $100 million. Before this Congress, the CRA had only been used once. We were able to use it during the first 100 days to overturn 14 harmful Obama-era regulations, saving a whopping $3.7 billion in regulatory costs and 4.2 million hours in paperwork.
I am confident that President Trump will build off of this momentum and continue to work with Congress on other pertinent issues affecting our nation.
March of Dimes
I was really lucky to have Suzanne in DC this week for many reasons, none the least of which was her help as a guest chef for the March of Dimes event Tuesday night.
President Roosevelt's personal struggle with polio led him to found March of Dimes, with the mission of preventing birth defects and infant mortality. This organization has worked tirelessly to help keep babies healthy and happy. Thanks to March of Dimes for letting us be a part of the fight!
