Hearing Will Cover RPM Act Next Week

semaThe RPM Act will be discussed by members of Congress in Washington, D.C. next week. The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Sept. 13 by the Environment Subcommittee, which is a subcommittee within the House of Representative’s Committee on Energy and Commerce. The Environment Subcommittee is chaired by Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL).

The hearing-entitled Big Relief for Small Business: Legislation Reducing Regulatory Burdens on Small Manufacturers and Other Job Creators-will cover the RPM Act, as well as three other pieces of legislation unrelated to motorsports. The hearing will take place in room 2123 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

The hearing webcast will be available at: energycommerce.house.gov. Committee members will examine several Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules and policies that have an adverse impact on small businesses across the country, according to committee leaders. Members also look at four pieces of legislation that seek to alleviate the burden these policies have on businesses, including:

“Much of our work here at the committee is focused on doing what’s best for consumers and small businesses across the country and next week’s hearing is no different,” said Chairman Shimkus. “Any opportunity to reevaluate onerous rules and regulations for our small businesses should be taken and any solution should be thoroughly vetted and examined. I look forward to examining the issues at hand and what we can do to reverse and reduce the adverse impact many of these rules are having on affected entities and jobs.”
