House-Passed Jobs Bill Curbing Costly Small Business Regulations Ready for Senate Vote | Speaker.gov
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement after the House approved the Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act (H.R. 527), the latest component of the Republican Plan for America’s Job Creators and the second of three jobs bills to be sent to the Democratic-controlled Senate this week:

“Costly red tape and government restrictions continue to pose a threat to private-sector job creation. This bill is the latest effort by Republicans to eliminate the government obstacles that keep small businesses from growing and hiring new workers – and it deserves an immediate vote in the Democratic-controlled Senate. I urge President Obama, who says he supports reining in excessive regulations, to call on the Senate to take quick action on this and the more than 20 other jobs bills the House has passed with bipartisan support. And I want to thank Chairman Lamar Smith and Chairman Sam Graves for their ongoing efforts to remove government barriers holding back job creation.”

NOTE: The Republican-led House approved the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act (H.R. 3094) last night and will be considering the Regulatory Accountability Act (H.R. 3010) tomorrow.
