Hill Praises Law Providing Regulatory Relief for Arkansas Communities
WASHINGTON – Congressman French Hill (AR-02) released the following statement after attending the White House signing ceremony for the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act, which repeals major parts of the Dodd-Frank Act:
“I’m grateful that after the bipartisan hard work of the House and Senate, the President has signed this regulatory relief measure – paving the way for a better economic future for all hardworking Arkansans and Americans. Today, we celebrate a win for our local job creators and the communities they serve after years of a Dodd-Frank economy that did not work for or help the working people. Instead of bureaucratic red tape and Washington mandates discouraging economic growth and job creation, we have provided this regulatory relief package that works to promote a healthier, safer, and stronger economy.
“I commend President Trump, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling and Senate Banking Committee Chairman Mike Crapo for working together to get this bill signed into law. I look forward to continuing to fight for our families and small businesses in Arkansas and across the nation by rightsizing unnecessary overzealous financial regulations that have stymied capital formation and economic growth.”
