Congressman French Hill Issues First Golden Fleece of 2017

WASHINGTON – Congressman French Hill (AR-02) announced that the entire Obama Administration would be the recipient of the Golden Fleece Award for January. A recent report from the American Action Forum found that the administration’s last-minute environmental and other regulations would cost the U.S. economy $6 billion.

Today, in an effort to prevent similar behavior from future administrations, the House passed H.R. 21, the Midnight Rules Relief Act, which would make it easier for Congress to repeal midnight rules that could cause significant negative effects on the economy.
