Grassley releases weekly address

Chuck Grassley Weekly Address 8By The Iowa Statesman


U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released his weekly video address Thursday, focusing on his efforts to reform the federal government’s regulatory processes. During his address, he used the EPA’s recent Waters of the United States rulemaking process as an example.

“The Waters of the U.S. rule is just one example of how agencies are falling far short of their duties to weigh the costs and benefits of new regulations and take seriously the public input,” he said. “Regulations should be high-quality, based on sound science, crafted in the open with the public’s participation and properly reviewable by courts.”
