Rep. Morgan Griffith
WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA) will make the case for bipartisan proposals to protect jobs from excessive federal regulations when he delivers the Weekly Republican Address on October 1, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) announced today. Listening to America’s job creators, House Republicans are acting on a series of jobs bills aimed at cutting red tape and addressing excessive regulations that hamper job creation. The bills that the House will consider next week deal with new cement and boiler rules that put thousands of Americans jobs at risk.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to deliver this week’s Republican address on the need for regulatory relief and the protection of American jobs,” Rep. Griffith said. “Real jobs are at stake in communities throughout the Ninth District and across the nation. I support common sense regulations that keep Americans safe, but excessive and misguided regulations are threatening the livelihoods of hardworking American families. In order to protect valuable jobs and give businesses the certainty they need to create new jobs, we must fix unreasonable regulations.”
Morgan Griffith is in his first term representing the Ninth Congressional District of Virginia. He serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee as well as the Subcommittee on Energy and Power and the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. Griffith is an advocate for removing unreasonable and unnecessary regulations on job creators in the Ninth District and throughout the nation.
“There are reasonable regulations that protect our children and help keep our environment clean, but there are also excessive regulations that hamper job creation and unnecessarily increase costs for consumers,” Speaker Boehner said. “By addressing these excessive regulations, we can protect jobs, remove government barriers to job creation, and ease the uncertainty facing employers and families alike. Congressman Griffith is a vocal leader on this issue, and I look forward to hearing what he has to say in this national address.”
