More on Government Regulation
The Endangered Species Transparency and Reasonableness Act, H.R. 3608, by Congressman McClintock passed the House Natural Resources Committee today.
“The legislation will allow the American people to see the data that is being used to make Endangered Species Act (ESA) listing decisions,” said Congressman McClintock. “This measure opens up the information so that the public can look at it, the science can be debated and challenged, and the best possible decision rendered under the terms of the Endangered Species Act.”
Congressman McClintock is the chairman of the Subcommittee on Federal Lands. The subcommittee held an oversight hearing on May 2, 2017. Congressman McClintock delivered the following opening statement:

H.R. 1219 – Supporting America’s Innovators Act: YES. Venture capital firms loan money to start-up companies. Since the adoption of Dodd-Frank, heavy government regulation has severely reduced the amount of capital loaned by these firms. Although the JOBS Act of 2012 eased the regulatory burdens on small capital venture firms, its provisions did not apply to coordinated investment pools of more than 100 investors. This bill simply raises that cap to 250, on funds with less than $10 million of capitalization.
