Oct 27, 2017 Weekly Capitol Report

With Halloween only a few days away, unfortunately American taxpayers were greeted with the wrong kind of ‘tricks’ this week. On Tuesday, it was uncovered that the Department of Justice under then Attorney General Eric Holder was picking and choosing what organizations to make settlement payments to, based on if they were liberal or conservative. That’s right, more rouge agency heads and bureaucrats picking winners and losers to award your tax dollars to based on if they were liberal enough to align with the administration’s political views. This shouldn’t be the case.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced they will enact the position outlined in Congressman Jason Smith’s taxpayer protection legislation that passed the U.S. House of Representatives in September. The policy would prevent radical liberal groups from taking Missourians’ tax dollars and imposing burdensome government regulations.
 
“There was a massive loophole called ‘sue and settle’ that has been hurting Missourians for years, and I’m glad the EPA has joined me in stopping this harmful practice,” said Congressman Smith.

POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. -- There's nothing quite like the warmth generated by a cozy old wood stove during winter.

But Environmental Protection Agency regulations issued in January to snuff the crackling fire in the potbelly -- in the name of air quality and better breathing -- now are the law of the land and causing some headaches for self-sufficient families and stove dealers in the Show-Me State. A local congressman is taking aim against those regulations.
