ICYMI: Foxx Visits America’s News Headquarters
Bipartisan Unfunded Mandates Information & Transparency Act will Require Honesty about Regulatory Costs

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) visited America’s News Headquarters Sunday to discuss the Unfunded Mandates Information & Transparency Act (H.R. 899), bipartisan legislation to require an honest accounting from government of the true cost federal regulations and unfunded mandates will pose on state and local governments and the private sector. Watch the video here.


Watch Foxx Discuss Regulatory Transparency and Accountability at America’s News Headquarters.

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx:“What we want to do [with the Unfunded Mandates Information & Transparency Act] is to make sure that the American public and the people who are writing the regulations know what the regulations are going to cost. Regulations are a hidden tax on the American people, on businesses, even on government. So what we want to do is to make sure that people understand that and hopefully look for alternatives.”

Fox News:“You mentioned a number of places [regulations] are going to hit, which are businesses, private businesses, and state and local governments. Unfunded mandates come their way and they have to comply, but somebody has to pay for it.” Congresswoman Virginia Foxx: “That's exactly right. It’s the American people who are paying for it.”

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx:“We are looking for more transparency and accountably from our governments, particularly at the federal level.”

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx:“If [local governments are] using this money for unnecessary regulations, they are not hiring teachers, they are not hiring firefighters…We want to bring down the cost of government and allow the money to be used more wisely.”
